Irrawaddy River

Mystical Myanmar and the Irrawaddy River

Discover the Mystical Myanmar and Irrawaddy on our 17-day, once in-a-lifetime river expedition. You’ll start your journey in Yangon, a stunning city of colonial architecture and Buddhist stupas, to Inle Lake with floating markets and villages built on stilts – a must see! And exotic temples and Pagoda’s in Mandalay, to the extraordinary Thanboddhay monastery in Monywa.

Unlike many of its Southeast Asian neighbors, Myanmar was closed to tourism until quite recently; as such, it remains fundamentally untouched by the advances of the modern world—a rare, unsullied gem waiting to be explored.  Discover this magical country in style when cruising aboard the luxurious Irrawaddy Explorer.      

Launched in September 2014, the Irrawaddy Explorer has set a new standard for luxury river exploration in Southeast Asia.  Designed in sophisticated English colonial style to reflect the region’s history but built with the contemporary passenger in mind, the Irrawaddy Explorer is a tastefully-appointed, 56-passenger vessel fitted with all of the conveniences of 21st-century travel.  Select from any of the ship’s all-suite, air conditioned rooms and you’ll be amazed by expansive floor-to-ceiling views that offer maximum exposure to Myanmar’s famous landmarks and beautiful countryside.
