Long hidden from the outside world, Burma, now called Myanmar, is a corner of Asia little changed from the past.

What better way to discover its delights than with a cruise along the Irrawaddy River (also known as Ayeyarwady River) with Belmond on the magnificent Road to Mandalay.

Stay for a couple of nights at the Governor's Residence in Yangon, a romantic colonial-style mansion that was previously home to the ruler of Burma's southern states and enjoy the towering Shwedagon temple and the treasures of this exotic city before flying to your cruise's starting point to begin a honeymoon full of wondrous and exotic sights as you glide along the river.

Watch a golden sunset over a thousand temples at Bagan and experience the enchanting sights, scents and sounds of this amazing country with a cruise aboard the Belmond Road to Mandalay.
