Did you know that Kipling's famous poem 'The Road to Mandalay' refers not to a road but to the legendary Irrawaddy River? It remains a memorable way to see the changing landscape of central Myanmar.
At Experience Travel Group, our team will help you design a luxury holiday to Myanmar that combines a river or sea journey with everything else you might like to see in the country. Our Myanmar experts have the know-how to help you choose the perfect route, voyage length, and style of boat to slot into your personal holiday itinerary.
Travelling by boat is a great way to experience rural Burmese life and to see the country's breathtaking landscapes. There are around 5,000 miles of navigable river in Myanmar, including the famous Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers, and an array of cruise boats cover distances both short and long. You can take particularly fantastic luxury cruises that allow you to take in the scenery in comfort and style. As well as Myanmar river cruises, you can also explore some of the beautiful, remote islands of The Andaman Sea and the Mergui Archipelago by boat.
