3 Days (2 Nights) Downriver from Mandalay nach Bagan

starting from $650

Board the RV Paukan and experience unforgettable moments on the Ayeyarwady. A river cruise on the Ayeyarwady is the journey of a lifetime. You will be amazed by the treasures – hidden from the world for so long – that you’ll see from this river, which flows through the whole of Myanmar. You will explore Mingun, which is home to the largest intact bell in the world and the never-completed Mingun Pagoda. Visit the Sagaing hills, a place of refuge for devout Buddhists with its many pagodas, monasteries and convents. We’ll also make an intermediate stop at Yandabo, a village specialising in pottery. On the third day, you’ll reach Bagan, known as the ‘city of four million pagodas’ and one of the most important archaeological sites in Asia.
