Myanmar river cruises

Experience the heart of South East Asia

Take a luxury cruise through mystical Myanmar

Join us on a luxury journey through Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, a vibrant tapestry of spectacular scenery and intriguing rituals. It's home to warm and friendly people who still adhere to age-old traditions and customs.

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.
