The Strand Cruise – Colonial Atmosphere


The Strand Cruise

The Strand Cruise Bagan

At Colonial Atmosphere, we do not have the vocation to offer cruises, we have however made a small exception due to the exceptional nature of this product.

If you are looking for something luxurious in Burma, combine a stay at The Strand Yangon followed by The Strand cruise on the Irrawaddy. In addition, this cruise is part of the fluvial tradition of the country so often described in the books of the colonial period by authors such as George Orwell (Burmese Days) and more recently Joseph Kessel (The Valley of Rubies). You will sail between Bagan and Mandalay, 3 or 4 nights depending on the direction, while taking the time to observe the life that is organized around the river. How uniquely special!

Many excursions will be proposed to you in order not to miss any of the temples and monuments in the areas surrounding you. The Strand offers a luxury cruise, tailor-made to meet all your requirements. They will be at your disposal for whatever you may require, including a hot air balloon at sunrise over the temples of Bagan, to create some truly unforgettable moments!

In our opinion, the unparalleled advantage of this cruise is that it guarantees that your days will be as beautiful as your nights. Indeed, the hotels are quite irregular in Burma, so this boat allows you to visit Mandalay, Ava, Bagan while enjoying the same level of service as The Strand Yangon. And believe us, this is priceless!
