Coronavirus Update for Myanmar. Myanmar currently has one of the lowest rates of new infections with 337 new daily infections reported yesterday* which makes us optimistic that we will return to life as normal and be able to enjoy our dream holidays soon. *Correct as of 14 September 2020.

The country's longest river and a waterway that is inextricably linked with Myanmar's history, culture and spirituality, the Irrawaddy has provided transport, communication links, irrigation and water for cooking, washing and drinking for centuries. It is along the banks of the Irrawaddy that you’ll glimpse the day to day panoramas of Myanmese life, and get to see some of its most spectacular natural scenery – farmers tending rice paddies, stilt villages in the shallows and, farther north, dramatic gorges that channel the river into an angry rush. An Irrawaddy River cruise is one of the best and most relaxed ways to explore Myanmar, and gives you access to a side of the country that those travelling by land just won't see.
