Experience a Myanmar as imagined by Rudyard Kipling aboard Belmond’s new ‘Road to Mandalay’ cruises along the fabled Irrawaddy river. Kipling’s poem Mandalay spoke of Myanmar (Burma to him, of course) as a peaceful, meditative land–and these cruises attempt to recreate the same ideal. Brian Hilliard and Shannon van Staden, experts at Tibetan yoga and meditation, will hold one-on-one and group sessions with guests. The cuisine will be ‘healthy spa’, including a mix of pan-Asian and Western options. Spa treatment rooms and state-of-the-art fitness equipment will also be available onboard. Itinerary highlights include visits to Ananda Temple, Old Bagan’s archaeological zone and an arts and crafts tour of Mandalay. Prices start from $2,656 per person for a three-night trip (departing Mandalay on October 11) and $4,632 for a seven-night trip (departing Bagan on October 7). See belmond.com/road-to-mandalay.
