Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) Cruises
The Ayeyarwady is the largest river in Myanmar (Burma) stretching 2170km. A sumpremely relaxing way to enjoy a visit to Myanmar is to travel along the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) river by luxury river cruiser.
Sanctuary Ananda, launched in November 2014, is a luxurious all-suite ship, custom built by local shipbuilders using age-old knowledge and traditional materials, while incorporating the most modern technology. She has a shallow draft enabling her to navigate the rivers of Myanmar even when the water levels are low, reaching unspoilt and unexplored regions of this spellbinding country.
The RV Paukan and The Road to Mandalay both provide leisurely cruises between Bagan and Mandalay, offering an oasis of stylish comfort from which to absorb the countless impressions and memories that Myanmar's giant natural highway has to offer.
Best time to be thereMyanmar (Burma) has three clear seasons: from March to May are the very hot summer months, the wet and humid monsoon runs from May to October and the cold dry winter lasts from November to February. The best time of year to visit is late November early December when the rains have gone, the landscape is lush and green and the skies are crystal clear. However any time from late November to March is a good time to travel.

I would also like to make special mention of Thida Win - she is an absolutely wonderful guide - very kind, patient, knowledgeable and a consummate professional in undertaking her job. She made sure that everything happened seamlessly without any hitches whatsoever - she is a great advert for A&K and for Myanmar.
