Exotissimo Travel is now offering luxury river cruises to offer travellers an alternative way to explore Myanmar.
Exotissimo’s ‘Cruise Mandalay to Bagan’ tour offers cruises along part of the 2,170km Irrawaddy River onboard the RV Paukan. A three level ship, the RV Paukan features an observation deck as well as suites and cabins. Designed with modern, traditional and European style motifs, the RV Paukan also features a massage room, spacious dining hall, a movie room and stage for cultural performances.
An extension of this tour is the six-night ‘Cruise and Explore the Ancient Kingdoms of Myanmar’ programme consisting of in-depth itineraries and stops in Bagan and Mandalay with temple and market visits as well as an extra night on-board the RV Paukan.
“River cruises offer an intimate and luxurious atmosphere often lost on larger ocean liners”, said Laney Shoup, Marketing Manager at Exotissimo. “With less people on-board than ocean vessels, the boat’s staff can focus on attending to specific customer needs and deliver a truly chic-style luxury experience while guests can observe riverside life up close.”
