We have a special vacation at Bagan. And we visited Ayeyarwady river then planned to see sunset on the small boat only 5,000 MMK per person. You can stay there for an hour. Relaxed and sightseeing around there.

I wouldnt think so. Non of the boats have swimming pools, and te Irrawaddy isnt a river in which I would consider swimming.
