Ayeryarwady (Irrawaddy) River is the symbol of Myanmar. Many ancient civilizations took their root along this 2000km water way. Without Ayeyarwady, there won’t be today-Myanmar. It’s the life-blood of the country and an icon of Union spirit. Taking an overnight cruise on this gentle river gives you an opportunity to see the past in the present. On route, enjoy seeing peaceful and quiet river life – fishing and sailing boats, people bathing and swimming on the banks, logs are framed up in the form of barge and moving tugboats, etc. On shore excursion is also provided to certain village(s) and let you have an insight into the community life. Fully supported and escorted, our short-cruise program streamlines the two ends where Western luxury meets Eastern hospitality. Let’s try Ayeyarwady Admired!
