3 Nights Cruise: Mandalay to Bagan

The Strand’s three-night cruise from Mandalay to Bagan begins with a welcome breakfast at U-Bein Bridge then visit to the Mahamuni Pagoda and the Shwe In Bin monastery, a beautifully carved teak monastery.  After enjoying lunch aboard, we sail to Mingun, one of the country’s former capitals, visiting the unfinished pagoda, as well as the Hsinbyume Pagoda and Mingun bell.

Day two sees our passengers to Ava, one of Myanmar’s ancient imperial capitals, for a delightful ride through the naturally preserved landscape and key landmarks. Here we visit the Yadana Shemee and Wingaba, temples, as well as Htee Lo min Lo. Once back on board, the ship cruises onwards throughout the afternoon towards the ancient city of Bagan.

Day three is spent exploring Bagan’s wonders, including the Ananda Temple, one of the most exquisite temples of the country; the Shwezigon Pagoda, renowned for its gold leaf décor; the beautiful Sulamani temple and Gubyaukgyi temple; before rejoining your fellow guests for a farewell dinner full of gastronomic delight.
