Cruises in Burma Myanmar

Myanmar has many rivers, streams, and lakes and a coastline of over 2,200 km. Boats have been an important means of transportation in Myanmar for centuries.

Cruises on the Irrawaddy River and the Chindwin are a wonderful opportunity to see the nature and lifestyle of the Myanmar people. We offer two types of cruises: luxury RV Paukan and RV Ayarwaddy Voyages, middle class Malika & Nmaikha.

The ship RV Paukan is a charming boutique hotel that moves along the river. It is in almost the same style as RV Pandaw, but was built in 2007 and is more comfortable than the RV Pandaw. The combination of ancient and modern motifs defines the style of the boat. It can accommodate 55 passengers to be served by 30 friendly and professional crew members. There are different categories of rooms, including suites, deluxe rooms and superior rooms. Two massage rooms, a stage for cultural performances, a bar and a cinema are available onboard.
