Around 11:00 hours, embark the luxurious Anawrahta, berthed at the quay of Bagan. Sail towards Pakkoku, an old trading town on the western riverbank of the Ayeyarwady. Right before the arrival, you see the longest bridge of Myanmar (Pakokku Bridge). You will be brought to some of the small industries in this area, such as a cheroot-rolling factory and a producer of Burmese slippers (flip-flops). A visit of the thriving market will give you an insight of the local goods and trading. Pakokku is also well-known for the production of Tobacco. If you like to buy some Burmese cigars, this is the right place. Continue touring to the Shwegu Temple. This temple features incredible, intricate carvings made from rare Yamanei wood. Back on board Anawrahta continues her journey north on the Ayeyarwaddy. As the evening approaches, a special event will take place at the Kipling's Bar. Adjacent dinner is served at the Hintha Hall.
Overnight on board.
Early morning risers can join yoga session on the sun deck. While having breakfast, the ship passes the confluence of the Ayeyarwady and its greatest tributary, Chindwin River. Arrive at the quiet small riverside village of Yandabo. Explore the village on foot. You will quickly notice that the villagers here are extremely friendly. Visit the local pottery industry to learn their techniques and skills to produce a variety of pots. Back on board, a delicate lunch buffet awaits you. While the ship is sailing, enjoy the luxurious on board activities and treatments. In the afternoon, learn more about some of the long lasting traditions (Longyi and Thanaka demonstration). A fascinating presentation about the history and culture of Myanmar follows afterwards. Before dinner, you may like to enjoy one of our various treatments in the Thazin Spa. Dinner is served at the Hintha Hall.

Have a delightful breakfast and upon arrival in Ava, disembark for a wonderful discovery of this former royal capital. By a horse-drawn carriage, you can explore this very area, sprinkled with many kinds of distinguished ancient monasteries and fanes: Bagaya Kyaung a jaw-dropping teak monastery built in 1834, which nowadays continues to be a monastic school. Maha Aung Mye Bonzan Monastery and the Nanmyint watch tower come both in a different art and creation. It is the peace of Ava which you will then hopefully absorb during a laid-back aperitif at a secret place in the middle of this sacred spot on earth. Arrive Mandalay and take some time to observe the beautiful Sagaing Hills with loads of scattered pagodas while the ship is passing by.
Disembark with the other guests in Mandalay around 14:00 hours.
