Embark

Embark the ship in Bagan.

Day 1: Bagan

Board the ship at midday and settle into your luxury cabin. Enjoy a leisurely lunch as the ship sails towards Pakkoku, an old trading town on the western riverbank of the Ayeyarwady. Visit local handicraft vendors and a thriving market giving you an insight of local goods and trading practices. Pakokku is also well known for the production of Tobacco. Continue to the Shwegu Temple, which features incredible, intricate carvings made from rare Yamanei wood. Return to the ship as she continues her journey northwards on the Ayeyervady. Later, enjoy a special evening in the Kipling Bar, taking guests back in time to an era of bygone elegance. You may also watch a classic movie under the star at the open air cinema on the sun deck.

Day 2: Pakkoku - Yandabo

Early risers may enjoy a yoga session on the sundeck followed by breakfast. The boat departs Pakkoku for Yandabo, a unique and fascinating gem of a village where in 1826 the King of Ava signed the Treaty of Yanderbo, signaling the end of the First Anglo-Burmese War. Explore the village on foot, mixing with locals and observing their techniques and skills to produce a variety of pots and utensils. Return to the ship for a buffet lunch. 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.

Day 3: Yandabo - Ava - Mandalay

Commence your day with a Yoga class followed by breakfast as the ship sails northward and eventually the boat arrives in Ava. In Ava disembark for a wonderful tour by horse-drawn carriage of the former royal capital, sprinkled with many kinds of distinguished ancient monasteries, such as Bagaya Kyaung, a jaw-dropping teak monastery built in 1834, which nowadays continues to be a monastic school. Return to the ship for lunch as it passes the beautiful Sagaing Hills, scattered with pagodas. Arrive in Mandalay in the afternoon where you will disembark.
