Cruising Down the River, on an Asian Afternoon
By: Bamboo Travel
Myanmar – Sunset cruise on the Irrawaddy (https://www.bambootravel.co.uk/
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.
