Guest will enjoy a scenic drive from Yangon to Prome AFTERNOON EXCURSION: Prome and Sri Kestra Once controlled by the Mon tribe during the Bagan Era, and then conquered by the Burmese King Alaungpaya in 754, Prome (known as Pyay to locals) boomed along with the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company in the 1890s and is now an important trading post for goods travelling between northern and southern Myanmar. This afternoon we drive to Thayekhittaya(also known as Sri Kestra, the “Fabulous City” in the Pali language), an ancient Pyu city that ruled in this area between the 5th and the 9th centuries. We visit the well-documented Sri Ksetra Museum, full of excellent maps and artifacts including Hindu deities, Buddha images from as far back as the 6th century, Pyu beads, and silver coins.

This morning we put you on Tuk-Tuk to visit the charming town of ThayetMyo, stopping at the oldest golf course of Myanmar with a fascinating history (guests may hit from the first tee). We then visit the local market, passing colonial homes constructed during the British colonization of Burma before returning to the ship for an afternoon of scenic cruising.

This morning we venture out into the district capital city of Magwe aboard Trishaws (three wheeled bicycle where one person sits alongside the driver). A short walk takes us to the local market. After some time to explore and shop at the market we board our trishaws for a ride through the city to visit Mya ThaLun pagoda. Mya ThaLun is a beautifully gilded stupa set atop Naguttama Hill which offers a wonderful view of the river and surrounding area.
