Travelling on water is an interesting way to discover some of the world's most exceptional landscapes at an entirely leisurely pace. Belmond Road to Mandalay provides a luxurious way to experience the beauty of Burma (Myanmar) from a unique perspecitve and is the perfect complement to a holiday exploring the Asian continent. A typical day starts with a buffet breakfast, before a guided shore excursion to see some of Burma’s best attractions. If you prefer, you can hire a private Guide (or a car) and explore at leisure. Alternatively, you can choose to fill your time by relaxing around the swimming pool on the top deck, sipping drinks in the Observation Lounge whilst taking in the views through the large windows, visiting the boutique, doing a mini workout in the fitness room or enjoying a massage, facial or pedicure in the beauty area. In the evenings, guests enjoy cocktails and live music in the Piano Bar, the entertainment in the Lounge (which could be traditional dancing or a lecture about Burmese culture) or may choose to borrow a book or game to take back to their cabin.
