Taste of Myanmar (3 Days)

Cruise Line: Belmond Cruises
Myinmu, Myanmar to Bagan, Myanmar
Myinmu, Myanmar

Board the ship at Myinmu, a typical riverside town just 30 miles west of Mandalay. Those who arrive early can meet your guide in Shwe Kyat Yat Village and tour the Sagaing Hills before joining Belmond Road to Mandalay. Enjoy a day at leisure, making the most of the luxurious onboard facilities. Relax by the pool, or opt for an indulgent treatment in the spa, before lunch on the Observation Deck. A selection of activities is available throughout the day. Sit in on a fascinating talk from our onboard doctor, get your fortune told by our astrologer, or learn how to tie a traditional longyi. Afternoon tea is served local-style in our 'Burmese Tea Shop' experience. In the evening, dress in your longyi for a fun-filled cocktail party followed by a delicious dinner.

Bagan, Myanmar

Find inner peace with an early-morning yoga or meditation session on deck before the ship arrives in Bagan. A choice of tours is available today. The "Introduction to Bagan" excursion takes in the temples and history. "A Day in the Life" examines local culture, food, and markets, while "Bagan by Bicycle" is the ideal choice for those looking for something more action-packed. You may wish to visit Belmond's free clinic near the jetty in Old Bagan, where our doctor will be busy helping local patients. Lunch is served onboard the ship. In the afternoon visit one of Bagan's most magnificent temples, Ananda. Afterwards, explore a rarely-visited temple by torchlight before witnessing the sunset across the plains. Dine under the stars at the Road to Mandalay Grill on the Observation Deck, before enjoying a classical marionette performance.

Bagan, Myanmar

Early risers can choose to set off on a hot-air balloon flight across the pagodas (supplement applies). Watching the sun rise over the glimmering temples is one of Bagan's most spellbinding experiences. An early-bird breakfast is served before you disembark from Belmond Road to Mandalay for your onward travel arrangements.
