Setting sail from Yangon

Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, may no longer be Myanmar's capital, but it remains the largest and most important city, and the gateway to exploring this beautiful country. Visible from all around the city is Yangon's crowning jewel, the shimmering golden Shwedagon Paya, one of South East Asia's most beautiful Buddhist temples. As in the rest of the country, Yangon's creaking infrastructure has not yet caught up with the recent tourism boom, and much of the city remains in a state of elegant decay. It's also blissfully free of western chain stores and burger restaurants, offering a snapshot of an Orient that has largely disappeared from other big cities in the region.

Our tip

Since the people were allowed to buy cars of their own, the traffic has been terrible – walk if you can.

Arriving in Mandalay

Burma's second largest city is not especially pretty, though there are a few temples and pagodas of interest. More likely you will be in Mandalay at the beginning or end of a cruise along the Ayeyarwady river, or perhaps using the city as a hub to visit the sights of nearby Inwa and Sagaing.

For once-in-a-lifetime tailor-made itineraries, Mundy Adventures specialises in expedition cruises to some of the most wonderful places on earth; places often only accessible by water.
