Amara River Cruise offers private boat trips. The teak boats Amara River Cruise I and II are built according to traditional style and designed to be a particularly comfortable mode of passenger transport.
Departing from Mandalay, the route of the Amara River Cruise is along the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, both southbound down the river from Mandalay to Bagan and north-eastbound from Mandalay to Bhamo. Even today, the Bhamo region is a largely undiscovered area of Myanmar. Please contact us to find out about the timetable for specific cruise tours.
The traditional Burmese cabins provide luxurious western comforts: each cabin is fitted out with a toilet, shower and marble wash basin. The teak panel cabin walls exude a feeling of calm and security. The bar on the top deck, where the dining area, covered by a sunroof, is located, is ideal for relaxing evenings. Indulge in the Asian and European haute cuisine prepared by our on-board chef. Our friendly staff will deliver quality on-board service. Conclude your eventful day unwinding in a deckchair in the evening sunshine.
Generators provide an around-the-clock electricity supply (220V 50Hz) on board, which is delivered by batteries during the night. The high security standards include fire alarms, fire extinguishers and life vests. A special service offered is the on-board laundry facility.
