A longer river cruise in Myanmar gives you the option of exploring the main highlights in real depth or getting to some of the country's more inaccessible corners with ease.
If you are visiting Myanmar for the first time and like the idea of a long cruise then a comprehensive exploration of the lower Irrawaddy River beginning in Yangon and travelling all the way upstream to Mandalay will be a good choice. You will take in major sites like Bagan and very remote villages too, sleeping in comfort and not having to rush.
Alternatively, if you are visiting Myanmar for a second time you might enjoy one of the more off-the-beaten-track expeditions on the upper Irrawaddy or north along the Chindwin or south down the Salween (Thandlwin) to exotic locations like Hpa An and Mawlamyine.
These longer journeys tend only to operate on specific dates of the year but at Experience Travel Group we will help you choose the perfect river journey to suit your calendar and travel style and knit it together with everything you might like to see in Myanmar beyond the waterways.
