Sit back in the shade on the top deck of your boat, sip a drink and watch the world go by. Enjoy a fabulous locally-made lunch on the boat. Stop at various places for sight-seeing. Couldn't be more relaxing than that!

We had a great day cruising up to Mingun. The river was alive with local traffic and it was so interesting to see the life on the river. Well worth a trip if you have the time.

Went with tour guide by boat from Sagaing to Mingun along the Ayeyarwaddy River. It took about 45 minutes. Really relaxing trip. Then check out the sites in Mingun. Highly recommended. Catch the sunset on the river on the way back if in late afternoon.

What a wonderful way to see Mandalay from a different perspective. The cruise is roughly an hour on smooth river waters. There are small villages that dot the shoreline. The pagodas on the opposite end of the ride are well worth the visit.
