Cruising on Burma’s legendary Irrawaddy River has been a feature of life in the once secretive Asian nation for more than a century.
It's one of the most famous rivers in the world, not just because of its size (more than 2,500 kilometres in length) but as much for the rich history and spiritual significance of this most revered of waterways.
There is an old saying in China: "If you haven't travelled up the 'Chang Jiang', you haven't been anywhere".
Sitting on the deck of the RV AmaLotus with a refreshing glass of Angkor beer in hand, the wide, brown Mekong River stretches out before us.
River cruising remained the fastest growing travel style of 2015 at Travel Associates – our clients booking almost 40% more river cruise holidays compared to last year.
