Myanmar River Cruises - Viking River Cruises
Myanmar (Burma) is embracing tourists who seek to discover its ancient history and unique traditions. Take advantage of the removal of decade-long travel restrictions to Myanmar (Burma) with this new river cruise opportunity from Viking River Cruises.
When cruising through Myanmar with Viking River Cruises, you could visit stunning pagodas like the Mahamuni Pagoda in Mandalay. The pagoda’s Buddha statue is thought to be one of only five Buddha likenesses created while the Buddha was still alive. You can also witness the beautiful tapestry, woodcarving and pottery creations of the locals.
Viking River Cruises’ Myanmar voyages also stop in Bagan, an ancient city that will give Angkor Wat a run for its money. View thousands Buddhist temples, monasteries and pagodas that were built between the 9th and 13th centuries.
A river cruise through Myanmar is almost a time-travelling experience back to the 1960s. Don’t be surprised to find locals traveling by horse and carriage, and most vehicles are classic models by today’s standards.
This amazing journey into Myanmar is one you'll share with only 59 other guests, as the Viking Myanmar, which was refurbished in 2013, is an extremely intimate river ship. Onboard you will have a spacious suite and the option to attend a number of fascinating discussions on the history and culture of Myanmar.
