Cruise between Mandalay and Bagan on a beautiful river trip that trades overland travel for a gorgeous day on the Ayeyarwady River. Sun decks and climate-controlled cabins ensure a comfortable day in any weather, and you’ll pause to visit a riverside village, try on traditional costumes, and catch a Ayeyarwady River sunset. For an all-inclusive experience, add a fresh breakfast and Burmese-style lunch when booking.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Mandalay jetty for an early morning departure, and settle into the climate-controlled, teak wood cabin. If you’ve opted for the cruise with meals, start with a breakfast served alongside fruit juice, coffee, and tea on the sunny upper deck.

The first stop is at Lekkapin, a traditional village on the edge of the water, where you’ll see traditional handicrafts, visit local houses, and encounter members of the small community. Lunch will be served on the upper deck, and in the afternoon, the crew will demonstrate typical Burmese dress and makeup—you’re welcome to participate.

Watch sunset colors illuminate the river as you approach Bagan, sipping a cocktail on the final stretch. This Ayayarwady cruise concludes at the Bagan jetty.
