A relaxing cruise journey sailing upstream on the mighty Ayeyarwaddy river from Yangon to central Myanmar and enjoy the fascinating views on the water.

Explore the ancient ruins of Sri Ksetra, acknowledged by UNESCO. You will be offered a glimpse of an even older civilisation than those of Bagan or Mrauk U – that of the Pyu, who built this huge city between the 5th and 9th centuries.
