Inside Burma Tours

Overnight cruise from Mandalay to Bagan

For a few glorious days travelling on the mighty Irrawaddy River, why not join a cruise linking the must-see destinations of Bagan and Mandalay?

For those who enjoy travelling by river but don't want to spend the majority of their trip on a boat, there are a range of great options. These primarily link the must-see destinations of Bagan and Mandalay, both of which are located in central Burma on the banks of the Irrawaddy. Full-day cruises in both directions depart daily throughout the season.

If you have a little more time to enjoy the journey at a more leisurely pace, one-, two- or three-night cruises including full excursion programmes are available, enabling you to explore the ancient capitals near Mandalay and stop at traditional riverside villages along the way. Our favourite ships include the classic river steamers of the RV Pandaw and RV Paukan fleets.
