Explore the best of Myanmar, known as "The Golden Land," on this captivating journey along the Irrawaddy River. Start in Yangon, formerly Rangoon, with a walking tour of the city's highlights and a visit to stunning Shwedagon Pagoda - considered by many to be the oldest pagoda in the world. Explore some of the most important temples and watch the sunset over the plains of Bagan, one of the world's greatest archaeological sites. On the Irrawaddy, encounter a tapestry of exotic flavors and partake in memorable interactions with the locals. North of Mandalay, cruise on the most scenic part of the river past lavish shrines, teak forests, and riverside villages lost in time. Tour bustling Mandalay and stop at nearby U Bein Bridge for an unforgettable sampan ride at sunset. See how villagers make candy from the toddy palm tree and take a walking tour through a pottery-making village to see the process from start to end. Present alms, offerings of food, to the monks at a monastery in Kya Hnyat. In Katha, visit a local market and a local ethnic minority village where you will learn about their unique culture. Interact with the local school children and visit a fisherman's home for a glimpse of daily life at the island village of Kyun Daw. Sail through the dramatic second defile with its magnificent cliffs as the river narrows before reaching Bhamo, the northernmost point ships can navigate the river. All this and more awaits you on this incredible adventure!
