For early birds, you can choose the optional land tour in Mandalay to get to know the city before going on a cruise. The land tour comprises a few well-known tourist attractions which we can not forget to mention is Mahamuni Pagoda. The Mahamuni Pagoda is the largest pilgrimage temple of Buddha in Mandalay where stores a 6.5 tons Buddha image covered in 15-centimeter-thick gold leaves. Located not far away, you can take a short walk around the Shwenandaw Monastery - a teak wood monastery standing still after the bombarding WWII. At the foot of Mandalay Hill, you also make a visit at the Kuthodaw Pagoda built from 1868 to preserve religious Buddhist scriptures with 720 tablets including 1460 pages - it is now considered “the biggest book” in the world.

After getting on board, we will start our journey with a delicious lunch made by cruise’s chef to tank up your energy for a stop at Sagaing. Sagaing hills used to be Shan Kingdom’s capital city and now is the home of thousand monks and nuns with a great number of monasteries and the highlighted one is Soon U Pon Nya Shin. Afterward, we will experience the working routine performed by skilled craftsmen in a silversmith in Ywataung village. 

We get back on board and set sail to Amarapura in the late afternoon. The city Amarapura, which is also known as the name the City of Immortals, used to be the formerly prosperous capital of Myanmar. Now the city is filled with the clacking sounds of weaving looms and silk at the workshop. 

Thereupon, at around 5:15 p.m, we take a leisurely walk along U Bein Bridge built across the Taungthaman Lake and originally from teak wood since 1847. After the spectacular sunset on the bridge, we continue our cruise until the boat docks at Gawein jetty and spend the evening in Sin Kyun.

We make our next stop at the giant Mingun Bell - the second largest bell in the world that still rings. And then we will stroll around Hsinbyumei Pagoda which entirely covered in white color and created to commemorate Queen Hsinbyumei. 

Around 10:30 a.m, we head back on our cruise’s schedule to sail to the south. Along the way, you can catch a glimpse of untouched landscapes covered by the tamarind trees and dotted by the white pagodas. On the river bank, local women are having a chat while washing the clothes. It is time for you to relax and lay back at the Kansi Panorama Lounge. 

The Sanctuary Ananda will dock at the confluence of the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin rivers. While enjoying your dinner on cruise, remember to wait for the floating lanterns passing down on the river. 

Day 03 PAKOKKU TO BAGAN

From 9 a.m, we will ride on the trishaw to the bustle local market where we can feast our eyes and stomach with loads of stacks and boxes of exotic tropical fruits and vegetables. Leaving the market, we will get to see the cheroot factory where you can witness the amazingly quick and skillful hands of the women rolling cigars.

We get back on board at 11:30 a.m to get ready for the next stop - Bagan. The city Bagan appears in front of travelers’ eyes with a mesmerizing charm of numerous red-brick temples stretching on a green plantation. Bagan was also recognized as the World Heritage by UNESCO just recently in July 2019. Ananda Temple is the most well-preserved and a masterpiece in Bagan built from 1105 AD. Walking inside, you will be amazed by its massive space and four golden Buddha images kept from the 11th century. 

Having finished with Ananda Temple, we travel to Htilominlo Temple established a few years later than Ananda. This three-story temple is believed to be the very spot that King Htilominlo was destined to be King. 

Our last stop for today’s schedule will be on the ground of Pyathatgyi Temple. Waiting until late afternoon, prepare yourself to be stunted by the sky turning to glow red - the color of a burning sun dropping behind the top of Pyathatgyi Temple by the Ayeyarwady River. 

Dinner on board will be served in traditional Shan style and enjoy a unique, warming performance by the locals. 

Day 04 BAGAN TO SALE

Going on a hot-air balloon flight might take you up to the roof! You need to sign up prior 1 day to the cruise’s staff to let them arrange your morning flight at 5:30 a.m. Watching Bagan’s plantation from above with the panoramic view from the hot -air balloon is the most spectacular thing to do in this ancient temples city. 

To continue with the charming Bagan where we left off yesterday, we will head to visit another vibrant market - Nyaung U Market. This market sells not only daily crops and supplies but also displays a wide range of lacquerwares. 

Right after strolling around the market, we proceed to the golden Shwezigon Pagoda.

Two value relics are kept safe inside the pagoda two bones and a tooth from Gautama Buddha, which comes along with an interesting story about Buddhism. On the way returning to the boat for lunch, we stop by a workshop in Myinkaba to observe craftsmen creating art on lacquerwares. 

We will be on the ship by noon at around 12:30 p.m to continue sailing downstream to Sale. On the way, we can see those original oil-well pumps - people call it “nodding donkeys” on the edge of the river in Chauk. 

It normally takes about 4 hours to get to Sale and we will arrive at 4:30 p.m. This small town is the perfect place to get around on foot or by trishaw. After spending a little time to get to know the town, we take our visit to Yoke Sone Kyang Monastery made from teak wood with Burmese architecture and patterns. The tour of the day ends with a quick look at Thatana Kyaung Temple built from bamboo. Dinner is served on the cruise.

The ship stops at Magwe and we take our time to explore the town at 2 p.m. Our first stop in Magwe is a golden pagoda on a hilltop called Myat Than Lun Paya. Later in the afternoon, going along the river, we will reach Minhla and stop for the night.

Continuing with Pyay, we make our trip rewinding back in time to the Pyu Dynasty when visiting Thayekhittata - a display of stupas vary in sizes built between the 4th and 13th centuries. 

On our next stop, let’s make way to get to Shwesandaw Paya. The holy pagoda not only makes a great imprint in terms of size but also has become a sacred place when taking charge of storing strands of Buddha’s hair and actual tooth. Such holy items are now annually celebrated during the full moon in November. From afar, the 10-meter-high Buddha statue strike right in the view of travelers.

The town’s name in English is Tax Mountain and it was named in the 19th century from numerous images of Buddhas carved into a steep cliffside.

We take a short break at Kenaung Village and watch the daily life of the local people. On the street, the children often play a ball game called “chinlone” which is a traditional team ball sports.

During the colonial time, the British Army stole the images of Buddha. After that event, the Queen of England kept having a severe headache. Soon after, these figures were put back where it belonged and the Queen then had a miraculous recovery. Head a little to the south where located a town call Danuphyu. In this town, we will head toward a Monastery and a Memorial figure of general Maha Bandula at Pali University. He was the general who leads Burmese troops to fight against the British Army during the Anglo-Burmese war.
