Info : Irrawaddy River Cruises
For those looking for a truly unique and restful experience in Myanmar, an Irrawaddy (or Ayewaddy) river cruise provides a fantastic insight into the heart and soul of the country. The Ayewaddy is undoubtedly the country's most important waterway, flowing from Kachin state in the north near the Chinese border, all the way to the Indian Ocean in the south. Luxury Irrawaddy river cruises are available to cover a number of destinations within Myanmar: a one-night cruise between Mandalay and Bagan is a popular choice, or extensive trips covering 14 nights from Yangon to Mandalay via Prome are also popular too.

Our guides in Yangon, Bagan, and Kalaw / Lake Inle were wonderful. They struck the right balance of explaining the history and importance of the sights we were seeing without over-doing it, they knew where to get the best view/experience at what time and could rearrange experiences so we got the most out of them. A standout was our guide in Kalaw / trek / Lake Inle. He was as keen to learn from us as he was to teach us, he bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and comfortable, and he was just plain fun too!
