Ayeyarwaddy River, Mingun
(4.5/5 based on 95+ 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. Arrange to visit Ayeyarwaddy River and other attractions in Mingun using our Mingun itinerary planner.
