Home to 1800- 2000 pagodas, Bagan is a must on any visit to Burma. Most are from the 11th and 12th century when Bagan was the capital of Burma. Similar in some ways to Angkor Wat, there are Pagodas as far as the eye can see. We visited the major ones, including Ananda. I am struck by the peace and spirituality of Bagan.
One of the highlights of our visit to Burma is a cruise on the ship Road to Mandalay.
An Orient Express owned operation that lives up to it’s elegant, amazing reputation.
I have never seen any company work as hard at making your travel experience truly unforgettable, be it one of their hotels, trains or cruises. Nothing is overlooked, top notch at every point. Fine dining, spacious cabins, amazing service, spectacular in every way-as one would expect from Orient Express. We departed from Mandalay and sailed on the Irrawaddy River downstream to Bagan. Delightful at every turn, it is an experience I heartily recommend.
