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.

Don't miss

Visit Shwedagon by daylight AND in the evening if you can – magical. Don’t forget to find your Buddha (the day of the week you were born) for a special prayer.

Arriving in Bangkok (Klong Toey)

Thailand's sprawling capital is an assault on the senses, an invigorating blend of tradition and modernity. Soaring skyscrapers, air-conditioned shopping malls and an efficient public transport system combine with shimmering golden temples, ancient palaces, floating markets and at times gridlocked rush hour traffic. Bangkok is also a real culinary treat; perching at a street food stall tucking into a bowl of noodles by the roadside is a great way to take the pulse of the city, and you'll find regional cuisines from all over Thailand. The nightlife here is also legendary, though is perhaps not for the faint-hearted!

Our tip

Most tourist sights and markets are open 7 days a week, so be cautious if you’re told otherwise, a common trick from a minority of disreputable taxi drivers. We recommend organising excursions in advance or through a reputable hotel.

The Ship

Your home from home

Oceania Insignia - Pool deck
Oceania Insignia - Toscana
Oceania Insignia - Penthouse Suite

Small enough to operate fascinating port-intensive itineraries, but with the space for dining options, comfortable accommodation and more, sister ships Insignia, Nautica, Regatta and Sirena are for many the perfect size.

What we love

These four boutique style sister ships carry just 684 guests apiece, with a comfortable, relaxed country house style and plenty of intimate corners. We love the alternative restaurants - Oceania is rightly renowned for great food - and the pretty little library up on deck 10.

Ways to make it better
The Strand Hotel, Yangon

Our favourite hotel in Yangon

It has to be The Strand – grand colonial splendour.

Balloons over Bagan

Assuming your call is overnight, don’t miss flying to Bagan, and include ballooning at dawn if you possibly can.

Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok

Where to stay in Bangkok

The Shangri-La Bangkok sits on the banks of the river, allowing for easy sightseeing by river boat and provides a luxury sanctuary from the bustle of the city whilst maintaining a distinctly Asian feel.

Wat Phrasisanpetch, Ayutthaya, Thailand

Excursions from Bangkok

Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam, is known for spectacular temples. About 50 miles north of Bangkok it makes a fascinating day tour.
