Burma is home to one of Asia's great rivers, the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady), which begins in the north of the country and flows south for more than 2,000 km past many of Burma's most celebrated destinations. During the British colonial era the Irrawaddy was the principle route for transport between the capital Rangoon and the north, giving rise to Kipling's reference to the river as "the road to Mandalay". Journeys on the Chindwin River, one of the Irrawaddy's largest tributaries, offer a chance to explore otherwise inaccessible parts of northern Burma in comfort and style.
- Activity Holidays
From the jewelled Andaman Sea to the snow-capped Himalayas on the border of Tibet, Burma is home to a myriad landscapes and habitats from dense jungle to arid semi-desert. These diverse settings provide a fabulous range of activities and experiences, whether you're after exciting adventures or something more sedate. Whether it's exploring by bike, discovering the quiet corners of Bagan away from the tour groups, paddling through the Irrawaddy Delta on a night safari in search of crocodile or grabbing a bucket and joining the locals in the annual water-splashing festival, there are magical experiences aplenty to help you get beneath the surface of this enigmatic country.
