Travelling by boat can be one of the most fascinating ways to experience Myanmar, allowing visitors to get a real taste of life on the river, mixing with locals and taking in the views. The most popular routes follow the backbone of Myanmar – the mighty Irrawaddy River (also spelt Ayeyarwady or Ayeyarwaddy), but there are also possibilities for some other inland and sea routes.
At some of Myanmar’s most visually spectacular spots, taking a hot air balloon trip can be the most awe-inspiring way to take in the scenery. Bagan is the most popular place to take to the skies (most spectacularly at sunrise or sunset), and you can also take balloons over Mandalay and Inle Lake.
