Cruising gently along the Irrawaddy River, The Road To Mandalay accesses the unique sights, scents, and sounds of Burma (Myanmar) in style and luxury.

From the royal city of Mandalay and the sacred Sagaing Hills, this beautiful craft voyages south to the ancient capital of Bagan, with its 2,500 pagodas spread across a dusty plain; it also heads north through forested gorges to Bhamo near the Chinese border. There is no more pleasurable way to experience Burma—to feel its pulse, meet its people, live its legends, and understand its history.

Accommodations aboard the Road to Mandalay
Newly refurbished cabins on the Road To Mandalay offer guests space and comfort in luxury and style. Inside this graceful river cruiser the emphasis rests on traditional comfort combined with delightful luxury. The spacious en suite cabins are fully air-conditioned and furnished with the most beautiful fabrics, finest linens, luxury bathrobes and slippers, and softest towels. 

Four cabin sizes and categories are available on the Road To Mandalay, all of which feature bedside table, wardrobe, desk/dressing table, chair and mirror, one large picture window, private bathroom with shower, individual climate control, satellite television, telephone, and safe. 

Upon arrival, each cabin is stocked with a welcome flower arrangement and fresh fruit basket. Additional amenities include nightly turndown service and turndown gifts, complimentary shoe cleaning after excursions, and complimentary early morning tea and coffee in cabin, plus continental breakfast (on request). In room dining is available.

Dining
No journey to Asia would be complete without sampling the regional cuisine, and on board you can enjoy an acclaimed gourmet menu of Eastern and Western delicacies, all served with Burmese courtesy and charm.

Buffet-style lunch is served on the Observation Deck or in the Restaurant in seven different themes: Burmese, Shan, Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and European.

Dinners are served in the Restaurant, at a time to suit you, and offer a choice of dishes to suit all tastes from the flavors of Asia to a la carte menus. A collection of carefully selected European and Australian wines are also available to compliment your meal. The outdoor Grill Restaurant opens for one night per trip, and offers local grilled specialities, live music, and fine wines. 

A Gala Dinner is served on the last night of each cruise with a specially designed menu.

Piano Bar
At the end of a day of discovery, guests may also retire to the Piano Bar for an evening in the company of fellow travelers. Decorated with a mixture of light wood and Burmese lacquerware, the Piano Bar offers guests a range of delicious local and international cocktails while enjoying the musical talents of the local pianist. Complimentary pre-dinner aperitifs are served in the Piano Bar every evening.

The Observation Lounge
The Observation Lounge has a colonial ambiance with its woven-cane furniture and wooden-slated Venetian blinds. Its large windows provide an excellent view of the Ayeyarwady River. A variety of local entertainment takes place here in the evenings, and during sailing days lectures on a variety of Burmese topics are given by guides. Two iPads connected to satellite Wi-FI are available for guests to use.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
