Popular Boat Journey
Connecting two of Myanmar’s biggest tourist spots, this is the most popular boat journey in the country, taking in a the expanses of the Irrawaddy River (up to two kilometres wide at some points), and sometimes including interesting stops at riverside villages, where you will get to see village life and have the opportunity to buy fresh local produce. This boat journey also avoids the alternatives of a rough road or a sometimes crowded train journey or uneventful bus journey. Depending on whether you choose the fast or slow boat, the trip lasts between ten hours and two days. Negotiating the Irrawaddy’s treacherous sand banks requires a skilled pilot, and in the dry season (December to May) boats sometimes get stuck – do not take the slow boat if you are in a hurry!
