The Road To Mandalay Luxury Cruise
Cruising gently along the Ayeyarwady River, The Road To Mandalay accesses the unique
sights, scents and sounds of Myanmar in Orient-Express style and luxury. From the royal city of
Mandalay, this beautiful craft voyages south to the ancient capital of Bagan, with its 2,500
pagodas spread across a dusty plain; it also heads north through forested gorges to Bhamo near
the Chinese border. There is no more pleasurable way to experience Myanmar—to feel its
pulse, meet its people, live its legends and understand its history.
A Pandaw river expedition is not like an ocean going cruise. There is no dressing up for dinner
and no ‘captain’s table’. The atmosphere on board is very friendly and informal, more like a
party on a private yacht than a cruise ship. Nearly everything is included in the price and there
are no hidden extras for excursions.. Even your drinks are included in the price of your ticket.
There is an incredibly high level of personal service and care aboard, with a crew passenger
ratio of 1:2. For these reasons passengers keep coming back and exploring more of a lost South-
