Luxury River Cruises Myanmar 

The daily life in Myanmar is closely connected to the mighty rivers that cross the country.  Traders, farmers, travellers,... for centuries they depended on the rivers for transportation and irrigation.

A cruise along the waterways is one of the most tranquil ways to experience Myanmar.

Cruises come in many forms, but we only work with some of the most luxury cruise companies in Myanmar, giving you the best cruise experience in terms of accommodation, meals and itinerary.

All cruise companies offer different itineraries from 2 - 11 days. Most clients include their cruise as a part of a longer Myanmar trip. Feel free to enquire which Myanmar river cruise can be incorporated best in your Myanmar trip.
