We are delighted to expand on our Southeast Asia collection with three superb new itineraries, each of which include a 9-night Irrawaddy river cruise on-board the elegant Irrawaddy Explorer.
A country synonymous with bustling markets, exquisite pagodas and Buddhist relics dating back to the 6th century, it’s no surprise that Rudyard Kipling once described Myanmar as ‘unlike any land you know about’. Yangon’s unique contrast of British colonial architecture, modern high-rises and Buddhist pagodas draw thousands of pilgrims annually. The serene waters of Inle Lake, spectacular for its floating villages, encourage lessons on the Intha people. And, Shwe san daw temple is a spectacular place from which to enjoy the sunset, with its five terraces, cylindrical stupa and bejewelled umbrella, overlooking Bagan below.
