Irrawaddy River

Frequently referred to as ‘The Road to Mandalay’, the turquoise waters of the Irrawaddy River flow from northern Myanmar (formerly Burma) to the south and out to the Andaman Sea. As an important commercial waterway for centuries, and still, to this day, most major cities run along its shores, each revealing rich customs, and traditions to engage and appreciate.
