The water road to Mandalay
Just like the immortal words of Rudyard Kipling’s poem, find your own story to write home about in this mystical land as you travel up Myanmar’s highway, the Irrawaddy River, to Mandalay.
Begin by exploring the ancient history of Bagan, once the capital of the thriving Burmese empire in the 11-13th centuries. Downstream, explore the British colonial history in Salay and Magwe before commencing your upstream journey to Mandalay.
Enjoy sitting back and watching the ever changing scenery pass by. Stop in Pakkoku and learn some traditional crafts, be immersed in the piritual lives of the local nuns in Sagaing and sail through the waters inhabited by the Irrawaddy dolphin to the pottery village of Kyauk Myaung.
end your journey in Mandalay, the legendary town so well known in literature.
