Introduction...
Discover the magnificent temples and remote villages of Burma (Myanmar) in style, while staying at the Governor’s Residence hotel in Rangoon (Yangon) and cruising along the majestic Irrawaddy river aboard the luxurious Road to Mandalay. The journey begins in Rangoon, home to the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda. Continue to the last royal capital of Mandalay and embark on the Road to Mandalay for a 7-night cruise to Pagan. Lined with ancient palaces and pagodas, the astonishing Irrawaddy river is perhaps the most pleasurable way to experience Burma, to feel its pulse, live its legends and understand its history.
