BASINGSTOKE, U.K. - July 23, 2020 - PRLog -- Whilst the UK Government is currently sending mixed messages about overnight cruising, Bamboo Travel is delighted to present some daytime river outings that offer a great river experience and may be more enticing than an overnight cruise in the Covid-19 era.

Myanmar – Sunset cruise on the Irrawaddy (

As the daylight starts to fade head down to the riverbank and board a private boat to watch the sunset on the Irrawaddy. As this time of day, you will see groups of children swimming and mothers cleaning clothes or washing pots and pans. You will cruise for around an hour, with a sundowner in hand, as you enjoy one of the simple joys of being close to the Irrawaddy River. Sunset cruises are more prevalent in Bagan but also possible in Mandalay.

The experience is available on a number of Bamboo Travel trips including the two-week Family Escape to Myanmar.  Other highlights include experiencing local life in Yangon, exploring the temples in Bagan by horse & cart and relaxing on one of South-east Asia's most tranquil beaches.  The holiday costs from £2,195 per adult, £1,795 per child for travel in October.

China – Cruise the River Li (

Depart Guilin on a leisurely four-hour cruise down the picturesque Li River towards Yangshuo. There is stunning scenery on the way as the boat meanders between the dramatic forested peaks and past bamboo fishing villages. This is one of the most enchanting river journeys in China with great photo opportunities along the way. A simple packed lunch will be provided to eat on-board.

The cruise can be enjoyed on the 12-day Highlights of China ( (among others) which also includes a visit to the Great Wall of China, discovering the Terracotta Warriors and a guided tour of Beijing.  The holiday costs from £2795 per person

All Bamboo Travel holidays include international flights, all transportation, B&B accommodation (plus other meals depending on the trip), activities/sightseeing, entrance fees and a guide where stipulated.  Prices are based on two people sharing a room (some trips feature family rooms).
