Irrawaddy River Cruising

The riches of the Irrawaddy river

Flowing north to south from its source high in the Himalayas, the Irrawaddy River is the lifeblood of Myanmar. Stretching across the country towards the Indian Ocean, the river has long been a source of inspiration for travellers, artists and poets alike.

A journey along the Irrawaddy is the perfect way to reveal Myanmar's hidden treasures - its people and culture - which for years were only known to the most intrepid of travellers. Embark on a voyage of discovery and allow yourself to be enthralled by the country's many charms.
