The Strand Cruise

The Strand Cruise The Strand Cruise

Board the stylish new Strand Cruise and you’ll understand why she is known as the ‘floating hotel’. She is, after all, sister to the renowned Strand Hotel in Yangon.

The Strand Cruise is, in all respects, worthy of her repute. She is one of the most modern and stylish river cruisers to be found on the mighty Ayeyarwady River, and one of the most luxurious. You will be able to lounge on her sun deck, blue sky above and a pool at your feet. You’ll dine on the finest cuisine whilst enjoying magnificent views of the river and its picturesque banks. You’ll be pampered - body and soul - in a wellness spa and can exercise in a well-appointed gym. Your cabin will be a symphony of modern design, teak floors and Burmese craftsmanship. Not to mention floor-to-ceiling windows, designer en suite bathroom and a round-the-clock butler service.

And then there are the destinations and shore excursions. From your floating hotel on the great Elephant River you’ll be able to explore Myanmar with its villages steeped in history, its fantastic architecture and its hundreds of temples and stupas. Just as breath-taking is Bagan, dating back to the 9th century – a capital of stupas and pagodas – and Mandalay. The Royal Cities of Mingun, Amarapura, Sagaing and Ava will astonish you with their ethereal beauty and history, whilst Tant Kyi Taung’s Glass Monastery is simply unmissable.
