Mandalay

Once you’ve settled into your suite on the Sanctuary Ananda, take a tour of Mandalay. Visit the Mahamuni, the Kathodaw Pagoda, Shwenandaw monastery and Kuthodaw Pagoda. In the afternoon, explore the holy Sagaing Hills before sailing on to the former capital of Amarapura, once known as The City of the Immortals. Watch the sunset behind the ancient U Bein Bridge before returning to the ship for a welcome dinner.

Sail to Pakokku

Sail to the village of Sin Kyun before continuing on towards Pakokku. From the comfort of the ship, you’ll be able to see the unfinished Mingun Pagoda, traditional villages and golden pagodas. Admire the scenery from the pool or the panorama lounge. After lunch take part in a variety of onboard activities. Watch a longyi and tanaka demonstration or take cooking class with the ship’s chef.

Visit the vibrant local market with one of our chefs before returning to the Sanctuary Ananda for lunch. As the ship sails for Bagan, you’ll be able to visit the golden Shwezigon Pagoda, one of the most important buildings in Myanmar. In the evening, watch the sun set over the mystical Bagan skyline before enjoying dinner on board the Sanctuary Ananda.
