Add to wishlist

From Mandalay, the classic way to travel south to the spectacular ruins of Bagan is via the great river Ayeyarwady. Originating in the Himalayan Mountains and a main navigational route, the river has seen many royal cities and religious buildings constructed along its banks which have shaped the landscape. You will “go back through time” in the golden land and you are sure to be fascinated by its magnificent and turbulent history, its unique sites and ancient civilisations.  What is sure is that after doing this trip, you want to go back and delve even deeper.
