Following a sell out first season in Myanmar, Travelmarvel has released its new journeys for 2017/18 which features 16 Irrawaddy river cruise departures aboard its newly launched boutique rivership, the RV Princess Panhwar.

Travel agents can offer clients a range of new dates aboard the impressive custom built vessel, which offers premium four star river cruising with guests enjoying a choice of 36 staterooms and suites ranging in size from 26 sqm to 42.5 sqm and either a French or an outside balcony.

Public areas aboard the sophisticated new vessel include an air-conditioned lounge area on the sun deck, a main restaurant, and a spa and massage facility.

The core itinerary for Travelmarvel’s Myanmar river cruising is the 15-day Majestic Myanmar– Irrawaddy Cruise from Yangon to Mandalay.

Priced from just $6,295* per person, twin share, the cruise takes in all of the fascinating highlights of this emerging destination, including: Shwedagon Pagoda; a journey by horse drawn cart to the ‘Leaning Tower of Inwa’, taking in Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan Monastery and the teak-wood Bagaya Monastery en route; the opportunity to add your own sheet of gold leaf to the Mahamuni Buddha; and an exploration of Bagan, one of the world’s most spectacular archaeological sites.

The new brochure offers a choice of 16 sailings between September 2017and April2018. A three day extension of theMajestic Myanmar itinerary to Inle Lake is also available, as is the chance to combine it with a Mekong river cruise aboard Travelmarvel’s La Marguerite on the 27-day Wonders of the Irrawaddy and Mekong.

Travelmarvel’s comprehensive inclusions cover complimentary drinks with lunch and dinner, most meals (including all meals aboard the cruise), the services of a Tour Director, airport transfers, all flights within Asia, port charges, entry fees, tipping, sightseeing and accommodation within the price of each of its Myanmar itineraries.

Commenting on the new brochure, Travelmarvel General Manager David Cox said, “Myanmar is attracting a lot of attention, to the degree that our first season all but sold out at a rapid rate. The attraction lies in the fact that Myanmar is still untouched and our guests want to experience it before it becomes too popular. We are looking forward to working with our travel industry partners to sell this exciting product and we predict it will continue to remain popular.”

Travelmarvel is offering ‘Fly Free, including Taxes’ on all Travelmarvel Myanmar holidays in any suite category departing September 2017 to April 2018. This offer is strictly limited and travel agents are advised to book early. Offers are subject to availability and terms and conditions apply.
