New for 2014: Memories of Mandalay

viking-logo.jpg Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand

One of the most exciting new destinations in the world today is the Golden Land of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. The first-ever visit of a United States president recently heralded the country’s opening to the west and visitors are beginning to explore its wonders: the ancient cities that grew up on the fabled Irrawaddy River’s shores, the stunning temples along its banks and the dynamic capital city of Yangon (Rangoon). Already in colonial times, travelers discovered Burma from the river, and it remains the very best way to appreciate all it has to offer.

Cruise the rivers of Myanmar and Thailand in 2014 with the world’s most award winning river cruise line!

Natural beauty, rich history and spiritual wonders await you in Thailand and Myanmar (Burma). Begin your journey in bustling Bangkok, where you encounter some of the Thai capital’s highlights, including the unforgettable Grand Palace temple complex set on the Chao Phraya River. Then fly to Myanmar for a two-day stay in Yangon (Rangoon) and a breathtaking cruise along the verdant Irrawaddy River, known as “the Road to Mandalay” after Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem. And in legendary Mandalay, experience the sweep of the region’s history from palaces and pagodas through colonial times to a contemporary melting pot of Asian cultures.

And now, for a limited time, you get 2-for-1 cruise pricing and $1,000 per couple savings on all-inclusive air with our 2014 Early Booking Discount.
