Cruise along the Irrawaddy River, enjoying magnificent views of the temples of Bagan as the sun begins to set. Sit back, relax and sip a refreshing drink as the boat makes its way past Shwezigon Pagoda and scenes of life on the water. Our Irrawaddy Sunset Cruise is the perfect complement to a day of sightseeing in Bagan.
Late this afternoon, your Exotissimo guide and car will transport you to the jetty where a private wooden river boat is waiting. Sitting under the shade or on the open-deck you’ll be treated to fabulous views as you cruise down the Irrawaddy River to Shwezigon Pagoda.
You’ll pass by small villages on the river banks, fishermen, local boats and of course many riverside temples. The views of Bagan are spectacular and a different perspective from the usual sightseeing.
On board a cocktail will be served, so relax and enjoy the scenery. As the sun begins to dip low in the sky, return to dry land and transfer back to your hotel.
