Belmond Road to Mandalay @ Katie Cadar

Belmond River Cruises

Discover Exotic and mysterious Myanmar

The Road to Mandalay offers itineraries between Yangon and Bhamo on the Irrawaddy river, close to the border with China, and cruising on the Chindwin River, passing mountain ranges through western Myanmar, and close to the Indian border.

Belmond’s hotels, trains and river cruises run initiatives to support the places and people that surround the destinations in which they operate. As part of their “Think Global, Act Local” approach, Belmond purchases as much food as possible from sustainable sources, supports educational programs and follows sustainable practices to reduce its impact on the environment and ensure energy efficiency.
