Irrawaddy River

One of the most authentic and relaxing ways to discover Burma, feel its pulse, meet the locals and understand its history, is to cruise the Irrawaddy River. Over the centuries Burma has blossomed from the banks of this mighty river, making it the perfect to observe this ethereal and bewildering country.

Irrawaddy River

From the small teak and bamboo dwellings, home to the excited children who run along the riverbank and the women purposefully going about their daily chores, to the ox carts cultivating fields, a cruise on the Irrawaddy provides a fascinating insight into the way of life of the country. Ancient stupas rise above canopied trees, and ruined temples reveal Burma's historic past.

The Irrawaddy River still remains Burma's lifeline, the people and economy are dependent on its vital natural source. Ferries, bamboo rafts, barges and fishing boats, all use this waterway for trade, but unlike other rivers in Asia today, life on the Irrawaddy still happens at a slow and relaxed pace.
