INTRODUCTION

Immortalized by Rudyard Kipling, the port of Mandalay and the river road which leads to it symbolize all the romance of faraway places. Our river cruiser is the ultimate ship of dreams, the best craft of its kind on the Ayeyarwady River.
The mighty river runs the length of this great land. Cruising into the heart of Myanmar you will glimpse its soul, reflected in a thousand golden domes lit by the setting sun, the opulence of palaces, the instinctive grace of those you meet as they go about their daily lives.
As the river meanders, relax, aboard 'Road To Mandalay' and begin to understand why this part of the world is so loved and why the Colonial spirit lingers in so many timeless traditions. Like a cool evening drink as you enjoy playing softly in the background before you prepare for the evening ahead.
All cabins on board our river cruiser are beautifully appointed with air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and facilities that guarantee your comfort and add to your pleasure. Twenty-four-hour room service is  available and always prompt. The cruiser has an on-deck swimming pool, and a magnificent canopied observation deck where you can sit in the shade as you take in the sights. There is a gift boutique on board with a full range of gifts designed exclusively for 'Road To Mandalay.'
The spirit of adventure blows like a warm breeze across the decks of 'Road To Mandalay.' Our cruiser is comfortable and complies with the latest international safety standards.
Our choice of lounge and bars are meeting point and focus foe relaxed conversation. Passengers share new and exciting experiences and the atmosphere quickly becomes informal and friendly. The observation deck is also a delightful retreat in the cool of the evening.
