Luxury river cruise The Strand Cruise Myanmar

Myanmars hidden treasures: River cruise between Mandalay and Bagan on the exklusive ship The Strand Cruise

3 nights from Mandalay to Bagan / 4 nights from Bagan to Mandalay

The Strand Cruise was custom built in 2015 in a shipyard in Yangon with a shallow 1.4m draft, designed to successfully navigate the shallow rivers of Myanmar. Named and styled after its sister property, the luxury heritage hotel, The Strand Yangon, The Strand Cruise offers all the features passengers would expect from a Strand product, from flawless service and gourmet a la carte cuisine, to signature elements celebrating the golden age of the Strand

The 61m ship carries up to 50 passengers in 25 cabins featuring a pool with comfortable sunloungers, a sun deck, wellness- and gym area, a restaurant and a bar.
The Strand Cruise sails along the mystical waterways of the Ayeyarwady River discovering the hidden treasures of Myanmar. There is a 3-night cruise from Mandalay to Bagan or a 4-night cruise from Bagan back to Mandalay. Relax to the gentle sounds of the babbling river, enjoy the beautiful scenery, discover remote villages, temples, pagodas, palaces and Buddhist monasteries or opt for a hike or mountain bike tour to Mount Pota.
