Ayeyarwaddy River, Mingun

(4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Ayeyarwaddy River serves as a life-giving vein for the country, providing it with most of its commercial enterprise, but also affording tourists with many cultural adventures in a diverse natural environment. Being used for trade and transport as early as the sixth century CE, the river travels 2,170 km (1,348 mi) until it empties into the Andaman Sea. The river affords a closer look at the unspoiled Burmese villages that make their living from its shores, taking to the water to fish. Look out for various creatures, including the rare saltwater crocodile, the Irrawaddy dolphin, and a wealth of bird life, especially around the southern delta area, where plovers, great cormorants, and whiskered terns can be seen.

  • We visited sunset watching. Walking shoes are sinking in the sand river boats, and changing river depth is in the amount of rainfall for the year, it is shipped from the ramshackle Pier. Stop the engine at approximately 40 minutes while admiring views of the River towards the upper reaches of the River, I was enjoying the Sun sinking slowly, go with the flow, but very nice.

  • I recently took an over night ferry ride from Mandalay to Bagan. The dock to get onto the ship was exciting enough. The trip on the Irrawaddy Princess 2 was enjoyable and relaxing with food and drinks...  more »
  • The Ayeyarwaddy River (Irrawaddy) is the lifeline of Burma and a trip on the river is an experience. On board by "the beach" we not only very well felt on the drive from Bagan upstream to Mandalay and Mingun but there was also an exceptional itinerary offered. A wonderful way of travel that quite corresponds to the fascinating character of the country.
