set sail in Mandalay
Welcome on board the Sanctuary Ananda. Check in at 12.30pm and
settle into your suite. If you arrive on an earlier flight we can
arrange a tour of Mandalay. Lunch will be served on board as
we cruise towards the pagoda sprinkled hills of Sagaing, an
important religious and monastic centre, home to some 554
monasteries and 6,000 monks and nuns.
Visit Amarapura, known as 'The City of Immortals' which in its
heyday, held some 200,000 inhabitants. We will visit one of
the textile workshops, followed by the U Bein Bridge, a spectacular
place to enjoy the sunset.
