One of our favorite small ship cruise lines outside of the US has announced that they are sending one of their ships to Myanmar in 2014! Have you always wanted to visit? I have! Mandalay and Inwa – both former capital cities – and the current capital city of Yangon are all on the itineraries. All the cruises include two nights pre-cruise hotel and 1 night post-cruise hotel in Yangon, giving you plenty of time to explore the city! Once on the Ayeyarwady River, keep your eyes and hearts open to the wonders of the landscape and the people. Watch for giant Buddha statues, ancient monasteries, and Pagodas. Visit local markets in search of rare treats and souvenirs, like terracotta in Bagan and clothing in Yangon. If you’re brave, visit the world’s longest teak bridge in Amarapura.
You can choose the 10-night cruise “Golden Treasures of Myanmar” or the 14-night cruise “Hidden Wonders of Myanmar.” The ship will start cruising November 2014. There’s only room for 56 passengers at a time, so space will fill quickly. Give us a call about booking your 2014-2015 Myanmar cruise today! (But be a little patient with our agents if they haven’t learned how to pronounce ‘Ayeyarwady’ yet.)
