One of the best places from which to observe the changes taking place in Myanmar right now is on a cruise along the Irrawaddy River. Flowing from north-to-south and lined by tiered pagodas, ancient temples and isolated villages, it’s the main artery of Myanmar. The Strand Cruise is a brand new cruise boat, named after its sister property, the Strand Hotel in Yangon, which offers three and four-night itineraries between Bagan, one of the world’s greatest archeological sites, and Mandalay, in 27 air-conditioned ensuite cabins. Each cabin has floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the magnificent views and 24-hour butler service. As well as spa treatment rooms, an outdoor pool and gym, we predict that the top-deck bar will be a focal point for sipping cocktails at sunset. The cruise’s excursions are perhaps the biggest draw and are all included in the cost. You can visit the royal cities of Mingun, Amarapura and Ava by horse-drawn cart; take in landmarks such as the U Bein bridge that stretches over one kilometre across Lake Taungthaman; and marvel at the enduring beauty of Myanmar’s innumerable temples and monasteries. Aside from these treasures, you will be rewarded by sightings of everyday life – thatched homes on stilts, bullock carts and ox ploughs and a way of life which has remained unchanged for a long time, but which may not stay this way for much longer.
