Enquire Now

Embodying the signature style inherent in Belmond products, Road to Mandalay, A Belmond Boat, Myanmar offers luxury river cruising against a fascinating and unique backdrop as you wend your way through Myanmar.

Road to Mandalay, A Belmond Boat, Myanmar offers shorter itineraries that are perfect as part of a wider tour but also gives the option of longer cruises along the Chindwin and Ayeyarwady rivers. En suite cabin types on board range in size but each shares characteristics of quality, comfort and attention to detail.

Belmond has a culinary reputation second to none and these vessels share this trait. Buffet-style lunch, for example, is themed to showcase regional Asian cuisine. À la carte evening dining is a delight, enhanced by specially chosen European and Australian wines and pre-dinner drinks, or a final nightcap can be taken in style in the delightful bars.

Two undoubted itinerary highlights are the royal city of Mandalay and the ancient capital of Bagan, but throughout this magical country there is magnificent temple architecture, a distinct and fascinating cultural heritage and an all-pervading sense of spirituality. These superb vessels make for a wonderful highlight on your Myanmar and south-east Asia itinerary.

These voyages are a small taste of what we offer. Contact our Cruise Specialists for bespoke suggestions and post-cruise options
