Inside Burma Tours

Boating & cruising

In terms of waterborne exploration, Burma has it all: mighty rivers, beautiful lakes, and the untouched islands of the Andaman Sea.

In our opinion, by boat is one of the best ways to discover Burma - which is why nearly all of our Burmese itineraries include a cruise of some sort, whether it's several days on a luxury liner or a short trip out in a traditional longboat.

On Inle Lake, where the locals live in stilt houses and tend floating gardens, boating is the only way to get around, and we can provide a variety of trips by longtail boat, kayak, or even speed boat. On the great Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers, we offer a range of options on beautiful, teak-finish boats - from evening Champagne cruises to 11-day adventures - while in the Myeik Archipelago we can arrange anything from fishing day trips to five days of yachting between the beautiful islands of the Andaman.
