Irrawaddy River Cruises

Cruise along the alluring Irrawaddy to explore a tapestry of exotic flavours, enchanting panoramas, and vibrant river activity. See locals producing candy from the sap of the toddy palm tree or stroll in a pottery-making village to watch the production process from start to finish. Venture to a monastery and present alms to the monks to observe their daily lunch ritual, and visit local children at a village school. Other Avalon cruise highlights include visiting a farmer’s home to learn more about his work and life, and even a chance to ride an elephant!

With a strong Buddhist following amongst the Burmese population it's unsurprising that the graceful form of the pagoda is a natural part of the landscape. One of the most important in the country, Yangon’s stunning Shwedagon Pagoda, is considered by many to be the oldest pagoda in the world. A true highlight of the holiday is a visit to some of the 2,300 majestic temples speckled across the plains of Bagan, including Ananda, one of the most beautiful of all the remaining temples. You can also climb to the top of a temple for an unforgettable sunset views. In Mandalay, visit Mahamuni Pagoda as well as Shwenandaw Monastery, the only surviving building from the original royal palace complex. In nearby Amarapura, visit U Bein Bridge for a sampan ride at sunset.

Beyond the must-see sights, Avalon delivers hands on activities and encounters with local people that allow for a truly immersive and memorable experience.

Cruise north of Mandalay on the most scenic part of the river past traditional riverside villages, teak forests, lavish shrines, and a host of bird and animal life. You might even catch a glimpse of the rare Irrawaddy dolphin.
