This cruise was exceptional. This cruise line thought of everything, our guides were well informed and kept a caring eye on their daily wards. We discovered pottery villages, lacquer basket making, hand woven silk textile mill... the fabrics were exquisite, many beautiful pagodas and Buddha's. There nothing quite as serene as exploring the river, and watching the sun set on an ancient sacred teak ...

If you think you've seen it all on your many travels around the world, you clearly haven't experienced the luxury, professionalism, high-end service and tourist savvyness of Amawaterways' AmaPura river cruise along Myanmar's sleepy Irawaddy. Just like our seasoned fellow travellers, including geography professors, we were profoundly impressed by the unique combination of must-see tourist sites, ...

This cruise was the first of the season. Although it was still during the monsoon season, we were lucky in that we only had a half hour delay on one land tour because of rain. It was however very hot and humid throughout the cruise. The service and the food was beyond exceptional. I have never had better service or food especially on a river boat. The capacity was 56 passengers, but because this ...

We traveled on the AMAPura’s 14-day itinerary in January 2016, from Yangon to Mandalay. We included an AMA transfer from Mandalay back to Yangon at the end of the cruise and then continued on a private tour to Viet Nam. We arrived three days in advance of our AMAPura cruise start date. We engaged “Tour Mandalay” for two days of private guide and driver services in Yangon. This particular cruise ...

Consider you will need a jacket on plane also. Light weight long sleeve shirts for day ...

After three flights from Calgary, Alberta to Yangon, Myanmar met at the Yangon Airport by Mojo (Cruise Director Assistant). Asked Mojo about exchanging US dollars to chat and asked Mojo about an approximate amount, he suggested exchanging $300 US. Received 2 bundles, one of $5000.'s and one of $1000's. These funds lasted through the whole 14 days. Used chat to pay tips on board and $.50 per ...

What a fantastic trip! We started in Bangkok ( the hotel could have been next to river) and it was a very long busy day touring. We had toured Bangkok previously so this for us was a repeat. We flew to Yangon, just a few days after the historic election of "The Lady". A number of the cruises had been cancelled in advance of the election, possibly because there was anticipated problems with ...

As a new destination it was difficult to research Myanmar in advance, but we were very pleased with our trip. The Burmese language is very difficult so this cruise is ideal. You get to see a variety of areas and have the benefit of your cruise mangers to navigate the language barrier for you. I would strongly encourage attendance at the daily cruise directors talk...you are offered a lot of ...

I wasn't quite sure what to expect as Myanmar is a newer destination for tourists, a poor country and we were there just a few weeks before their election. The people are extremely friendly and welcoming and we felt very safe. We were met by our AMAWaterways Cruise Manager at the airport and transferred to the lovely and good location Shangri-La Hotel in Yangon for 2 night stay. We had a 6 hr ...

I have just returned from a 10 day cruise on the Ayeyarwaddy River in Myanmar on the Amapura and cannot wait to go back. Because of the extremely low river we could not board the ship at the usual spot so there was a one hour bus ride from Mandalay. The Burmese are incredibly sweet and simple people, always with a smile and a wave. Tun and Thomas - Cruise Managers on the Amapura were terrific. ...
