The ancient capitals flourished along the River Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy) stretching from far north to the southern delta and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy exists as an important means of transport throughout Myanmar history. Adopting the old cultural and natural setting, today there has been a number of cruises are available and we recommend the journey between the two ancient capital Bagan and Mandalay. Cruises are on you choice, taste and budget.
