Belmond Road to Mandalay, Irrawaddy River, Myanmar
A journey of discovery along the river from Bagan to Mandalay in style and luxury
7 nights from around £2,500pp, including full board, domestic flights and transfers
By providing an attractive combination of fascinating cultural talks, incredible sightseeing and reassuring luxury travel, Belmond offers a seamless way to see and appreciate the highlights of Myanmar - from Bagan to Mandalay. As the Belmond Road To Mandalay meanders along the Irrawaddy River, you can admire the stunning scenery which has been hidden from the world’s gaze for so long. Few countries have remained so untouched in their natural beauty and charm from one century to the next.
The 56 recently refurbished cabins and suites combine traditional comfort and modern luxury. The cabins are large and airy and are furnished with beautiful fabrics, the finest linen and the softest towels. The cabins are all ensuite and air-conditioned.
Depending on whether you choose a 5 or 7 night trip along the river (going with or against the current), your journey of discovery from the relaxing vantage point of the boat, includes Bagan (where over 2,000 temples and pagodas are scattered over an awe-inspiring plain beside the river), Mount Popa, Sagaing and - at the start or conclusion of your voyage - Mandalay.
A typical day starts with a buffet breakfast, before a guided shore excursion to see some of Burma’s best attractions. If you prefer, you can hire a private guide (or a car) and explore at leisure.
