Browse our Myanmar Cruise Tours

The waterways of Myanmar are vital to the communities they connect, not just for transportation and sustenance, but also as a symbol of peace, prosperity, and hope. For captivating views, local perspectives, and outdoor adventure, enjoy one of our bespoke Myanmar cruise tours. Follow the snaking Irrawaddy River up from Yangon to surreal Bagan and the old capital, Mandalay. On glassy Inle Lake, visit the villages on the shore, peruse floating markets of fresh produce, and watch nimble fishermen balance on one leg aboard their longboats. Check out our sample itineraries and discover countless options for your own tailormade Myanmar cruise vacation.

What Can You Expect from a Myanmar Cruise Holiday?

A tailor-made Myanmar cruise holiday is equal parts relaxation and immersion. Snorkel and swim off the islands of the Myeik Archipelago. Drop anchor and bike around the villages and monasteries in Mandalay. Enjoy the freedom to go where the river flows with our bespoke Myanmar cruise tours.



HERITAGE VESSELS

Travel in style with private cabins and polished sun decks. From traditional longboats to colonial-style steamers, our cruise tours of Myanmar put you aboard sleek vessels that deserve just as many pictures as the landscapes.



SHORE EXCURSIONS

Explore rural communities on an afternoon bike ride. Go temple-hopping around Bagan by horse cart. Feast on scrumptious Burmese cuisine in riverside villages.



PANORAMIC VIEWS

Sail through landscapes of floating farms, thick forests, and the glowing sun sinking over the horizon. Our tailormade Myanmar cruise tours transport you to dreamy backdrops of old-world Burma.



UNHURRIED TRAVEL

The dusty-red splendor of Myanmar is best absorbed at a local, leisurely pace. Bask in the sun, and let the fabled river spirits lull you into daydreaming.



LOCAL COMMUNITIES

Burmese culture has always flourished along the country’s waterways. Our cruise tours of Myanmar will introduce you to the locals whose livelihoods are deeply connected with the currents of the Irrawaddy and the shores of Inle Lake.



EXPERT ADVICE

Our in-country Travel Specialists handle all the cruise routes, departure schedules, and on-shore activities, so you can lie back, sip a drink on the deck, and unwind.
