MyanmarMyanmar & Irrawaddy Cruise   Yes waitlist openfully booked 5
Yangon, Inle Lake, Mandalay, 7 night Sanctuary Ananda cruise
13 September, 2018 – 26 September, 2018
Journey to untouched Myanmar (Burma),  one of the most magical and undiscovered destinations in the world; a golden land of breathtaking beauty and charm that is steeped in fascinating history and traditions, a land where holy men clad in traditional longyi are revered, thousands of ancient, religious stupas rise out of flat plains and floating-village life ebbs and flows upon Inle Lake.     Then we have three nights to experience the serenity of Inle Lake, often described as  most magical place of  Myanmar and famous for its scenic beauty and the unique leg-rowing of the Inthas, the native lake-dwellers.  Picture a vast, serene lake – 13.5 miles long and seven miles wide – fringed by marshes and floating gardens, where stilt-house villages and Buddhist temples rise above the water, and Intha fisherfolk propel their boats along via their unique technique of leg-rowing. Surrounding the lake are hills that are home to myriad minorities: Shan, Pa-O, Taung Yo, Danu, Kayah and Danaw, who descend from their villages for markets that hopscotch around the towns of the region on a five-day cycle. We continue our journey to Mandalay where the luxurious, all-suite ship Sanctuary Ananda takes us in style for seven nights on a voyage of breathtaking beauty and discovery downstream and upstream on the beautiful Irrawaddy River to Bagan and then back to Mandalay.
