WIN A THREE- NIGHT LUX­URY RIVER CRUISE ABOARD BELMOND ROAD TO MAN­DALAY

DestinAsian - - DISPATCHES CITY SCENE -

Trans­port­ing guests in style along the Aye­yarwady, Myan­mar’s long­est and most fa­bled river, the 43-cabin Belmond Road to Man­dalay al­lows trav­el­ers to soak up the enig­matic beauty of the coun­try’s his­toric heart­lands at a re­lax­ing pace. Modern com­fort meets tra­di­tional crafts­man­ship in the well-ap­pointed en-suite cab­ins, whose ex­pan­sive win­dows make the most of the view as the river­boat glides past farm­land dot­ted with fish­ing vil­lages and an­cient pago­das. Whether it’s tak­ing a dip in the top-deck pool, sip­ping cock­tails in the lounge, or join­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as sun­rise yoga ses­sions and cook­ing demon­stra­tions, guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to on­board pur­suits. Ex­cur­sions on the clas­sic High­lights of Myan­mar cruise be­tween Man­dalay and Bagan range from an ex­plo­ration of Ava, a for­mer im­pe­rial cap­i­tal, by horse and cart to a cul­ture-ori­ented tour in Bagan’s tem­ple-strewn plains.
