BELMOND ORCAELLA

Belmond Orcaella is an intimate river cruiser that glides along Myanmar's two main rivers, the Chindwin and Ayeyarwady.

From the panoramic windows of your cabin you'll enjoy snapshots of life on the shores of these important waterways.

Leave the ship to experience the country up close. Witness the shimmering temples that dot the landscape and join off the beaten track explorations to remote regions. Wander through hilltop villages, taste freshly prepared street food and hunt for the perfect souvenir in the bustling markets.

Let the adventure begin.
