Day 1: Mandalay – Yandaboo Village (L, D)

Mingalabar! Welcome to Mandalay, the city of great culture.
Today, transfer to the Shwe Kyat Yatt jetty at 9:00 am to embark on the board. Then we start our Myanmar tour downstream to Yandaboo Village, a little treasure on the bank of Irrawaddy River. Upon here, take a leisure walk along the riverside to enjoy the mesmerizing atmosphere of a tranquil village that leave you away from the hectic pace of the city’s life. If luckily, you will witness many local women carry big things on their head, and see water buffalos follow farmers to the field. How interesting is it?
