Burma and the Irrawaddy

Nestled deep within Southeast Asia, Burma is one of the great unexplored destinations. Literally untouched by modern day travellers up until recent years, Burma remains simply breath-taking in beauty, warmth and a culture of a nation long forgotten. 

Once a British colony Burma is now predominately Buddhist; ancient temples of gold, stupas and monasteries proudly merge from deep within the green lush forests, leading to a back drop of the Akauk mountains.

The Irrawaddy river snakes its way through the heart of Burma, the banks alive with bustling villages and markets, its local people are inquisitively welcoming. What better way to immerse yourself into this exciting culture, and explore Burma in style and safety than from a river cruise.

Our fantastic cruises truly let the traveller taste and experience this land once lost; with walking tours, visits, and unique experiences all led by local guides. Burma will captivate, inspire and even move some of the most experienced and hardened explorer.
