Cruise Description

4 Night Cruise sailing from Bagan to Mandalay onboard Belmond Road to Mandalay.

Day 1: Bagan
Board the ship at Taung Be village near Bagan.

After lunch on board, set off on a guided tour. Visit Ananda, one of Bagan’s most magnificent temples. Explore a rarely visited temple by torchlight and learn about the traditional art of lacquerware.

The day ends watching the sun set over the mesmerising, temple-strewn plains and includes an exclusive candle-lighting ceremony just for our guests.

Tonight, dine under the stars at the Road to Mandalay Grill on the Observation Deck.

Day 2: Bagan
Before setting sail embark on the morning adventure of your choice. Select from a bicycle or horse-and-cart ride around the temples of Old Bagan, a sunrise temple tour or a visit to a local community project. For an additional supplement you can set off on an inspiring hot-air balloon flight.

As the ship sails towards Mandalay, enjoy onboard activities ranging from a cultural lecture to a treatment at the spa. Relax by the pool on the Observation Deck, the largest outdoor space of any river cruise ship in Myanmar, or keep fit in the gym. Sample local infusions and delicacies in our Burmese Tea Shop and learn how to dress in traditional Myanmar longyi, a type of sarong.

In the evening, dine on a selection of Asian and Western dishes in the elegant Restaurant. Sample the house wines or choose from our extensive international wine list.

Day 3: Myin Mu
Arrive this morning at Myin Mu, a charming riverside town just 30 miles south of Mandalay. Join our guides to explore the area by trishaw.

Return to the ship for lunch, then set off to the picturesque farming village of Alacapa. Walk around the town to get a rare insight into local life.

Back on the shi, anticipate traditional entertainment after dinner.

Day 4 Mandalay
After breakfast set off on your choice of two full-day excursions.

The first tour takes you to Mandalay, visiting the UNESCO- listed Kuthodaw Pagoda and Shwenandaw wooden monastery. Afterwards you'll pass through the streets of the marble quarter and visit a family of bronze casters. Continuing on you'll encounter the famous U Bein Bridge and the Sagaing Hills, where you have a rare opportunity to visit a nunnery.

Alternatively head off to discover Monyway, a town on the Chindwin River that is often missed by tourists.

Back on board, the chef has been preparing a spectacular farewell feast.

Day 5 Mandalay
An early-bird breakfast is served before you disembark from Belmond Road to Mandalay for your onward travel arrangements.
