Irrawaddy Sunset Cocktail Cruise
A glorious sunset cruise along the famous Irrawaddy River, cocktail in hand. This is a unique way to appreciate Bagan’s incredible temples from afar and an opportunity to see scenes of daily life play out on Burma’s largest waterway.
Not much beats a sunset cruise in a beautiful location, when all you have to do as the sun starts to dip is sit back, soak up the riverside views and enjoy a relaxing cocktail. This private wooden river boat cruise means touring the waterways, traveling the length of Bagan, as views of riverside pagodas and distant temple spires appear. The changing light makes it perfect for photography and at times the red brick and whitewashed monuments seem to glow. The boat is comfortable with a covered seating area and an open deck, making it easy to enjoy the scenery of small riverside villages, fishermen and local boats. While this is a fun excursion it also affords a deeper appreciation for the Irrawaddy River and its role within Burma. This is slow travel at its very best.
