tour details

Sail along the Ayeyarwaddy River and have a memorable trip in Myanmar. This is a trip for those that want to experience first-hand unspoilt Myanmar and to be briefly part of a village culture that has changed little in 100 years – a land of ox carts and wooden ploughs, of simple village life built around fishing, farming and the monastery. It is also a trip for those who wish to experience the thrill of observing the rare Irrawaddy dolphin, watch river life, and enjoy the beauty of seeing hundreds of winter migrating ducks and other wonderful birds.
