One of the world’s most secretive, mysterious and fascinating places, Burma, so long shut off from the rest of the world, has a unique, centuries-old culture and spectacular architectural wonders, including sacred structures gilded with gold leaf and encrusted with precious gems. For a full immersion of the country’s culture, while keeping a foothold in western creature comforts, luxury river cruise ship operator AmaWaterways has built an all-suite 56-passenger river cruiser, the AmaPura, which launches on Burma’s Irrawaddy river in November 2014, making daily stops with complimentary excursions and tours to optimise the Burma experience.
AmaWaterways’ Golden Treasures of Myanmar itinerary costs from £4999pp, including return UK flights from London, internal flights, two nights pre-cruise and one night post-cruise stay in Yangon, transfers to and from the ship, ten nights on board the ship, all tours, all meals, complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, on-board entertainment including cultural shows and lectures, and port charges.
