Burma’s rivers have always played a major part in shaping the country. As early as the 6th century, the Ayeyarwady was a vital trade route. Today, it transports the region's teak, rice and other commodities in huge quantities. It’s the Ayeyarwady's vitality and importance that make it such a joy to travel on.

Boat trips along its waterways connect many of the country’s most fascinating sites, from short cruises that visit Bagan and Mandalay to longer expeditions to the gorges of the far north. There are set departure dates for trips of different durations, making a cruise a good starting point for planning any tour of Burma.
