The boat to Twante

The boat to Twante

For an alternative view of life in and around Burma's biggest city, board a riverboat for a short cruise to the small market town of Twante.

The boat to Twante features a covered, open-air, two-deck boat with ample space for relaxing and enjoying the views. As you leave the city, the river begins to narrow into smaller canals, providing an up-close look at life on the river: fishermen, villages and small rowboats ferrying passengers and goods along the water.

On arrival in the small town of Twante, renowned for its pottery, head ashore and explore the many local potteries that use traditional methods to craft earthenware. You'll also travel by horse and cart through the local streets, passing by the market and Shwesandaw Pagoda.
