Tailored to your desires
Fun and learning is what Asian Trails Myanmar is offering to event and incentives organisers on a journey to explore the Irrawaddy, Myanmar’s largest river and most important commercial waterway.
The journey starts in Mandalay for the boat ride to the ancient city of Bagan. The trip takes about 10-12 hours, depending on river conditions and water level. Enroute there are fun activities like learning to apply ‘Thanaka’, a yellow-white cosmetic paste used as a sunscreen and beauty product. There is also a demonstration of ‘Longyi’, a sarong-like nether garment worn by both men and women, an integral part of the Myanmar national dress.
