Stretching the length of Burma, the Irrawaddy River, sometimes referred to as ‘The Road to Mandalay’ has to be one of the world’s most intriguing rivers to cruise. Just You, the UK’s single traveller specialist, has recently launched an exclusive cruise along this fascinating waterway for its independent globe trotters.

Just You’s Irrawaddy Cruise aboard the RV Kalaw Pandaw allows guests to cruise from Mandalay to Bagan in colonial-style charm with just 36 staterooms with no single supplement.

“Burma’s Irrawaddy River is a brand-new cruise for Just You and we have really put our mark on this one, our river cruiser is the ultimate in comfort and our all-inclusive shore excursions ensure that you get to visit the heart of Burma. As with all our holidays there is no single supplement,” said Alicia Welsman, Just You’s Senior Product Manager.

“Just You’s river cruises are perhaps the most relaxing, and convenient, ways to see Burma and Europe; you can simply sit back, relax and soak up the views as your floating hotel takes you in style and comfort to the heart of every destination. On each cruise we will take care of everything, all meals, selected drinks and entertainment are all-inclusive,” added Alicia.

Guests on Just You’s Irrawaddy Cruise will fly from London to Yangon, spending their first day exploring Burma’s capital, its skyline dominated by the Shwedagon Pagoda. Mandalay is the next destination where the RV Kalaw Pandaw, exclusively chartered for Just You guests, awaits.

Throughout the cruise the Just You Tour Manager-led shore excursions include visits to the potteries of Kyauk-myoung and monasteries of Khan-nuat; see the world’s largest working bell in Mingun and enjoy the sunset at the iconic U Bein Bridge.
