Orient Express Offers 12-Night Voyages Onboard Road To Mandalay

The Road to Mandalay, Orient Express’ luxury river cruiser, is set to continue its legendary journeys along Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River this summer season. Throughout August and September 2011, the ship will offer a quartet of 12-day voyages designed to provide travellers an insight into a country largely undiscovered by mass-market tourism.


Departing Mandalay to head north, the vessel visits major cities and towns along the river, including Bagan, Bhamo, Katha, Kyan Hnayt, Mingun, Mogok, Nwe Nyein, Shwegu and Zinbon. Along the way, guests have the opportunity to visit the world’s largest brick pagoda and uncracked bell, discover local markets, encounter logging camps and colonial villages, as well as soaking up the unique culture and traditional craft of the local hill tribes.


Recently refurbished, The Road to Mandalay’s spacious and elegant cabins are furnished for traditional comfort and luxury. Fully air-conditioned, each is well-appointed with luxury bedding, ensuite bathroom, satellite television, telephone, workdesk and safe box, while large, panoramic windows capture the vistas and natural beauty along the river.


Guests will also be able to combine their voyage with a stay at Orient Express’ The Governor’s Residence, a romantic colonial-style mansion located in Yangon dating from the 1920s. Both are part of the group’s collection of unique hotels and experiences in Southeast Asia, which includes the award-winning Eastern & Oriental Express luxury train.
