A Burmese New Year

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River this festive season with Orient Express’ six-night Road to Mandalay itinerary, which leaves on Boxing Day. As part of the experience, which begins in the regal city of Mandalay, guests will visit various local monasteries en-route to the ancient capital of Bagan, with a chance to join an initiation ceremony at Tuang Be monastery to see the moment when local boys take their first steps to becoming Buddhist monks. On New Year’s Eve enjoy a sundowner at the ship’s open-air top deck restaurant, groove the night away to a live band, and watch as locals revel on the river banks. Sunrise yoga and meditation sessions hosted on the vessel's top deck each morning are a must-try, before disembarkation on January 2.
