The Belmond Good Living Expedition, with Adventurer Raha Moharrak

The youngest Arab woman to summit Mount Everest, Raha Moharrak will bring her sense of curiosity and expertise in adventure travel to Myanmar, a beautiful country brimming with ancient traditions and fascinating culture.

As a Belmond Experience Maker, Raha will host an expedition into the untouched north of Myanmar aboard Road to Mandalay, a pioneering luxury river cruise on the mighty Ayeyarwady River.

The 11-night expedition will see Raha lead daily excursions, such as soaring above the temples of Bagan in a hot air balloon, discovering rural villages deep in the lush jungle, or horse-back riding to a monastery to witness a traditional ceremony.

The Cruise

The Cruise

Step into a world alive with colour and rich with tradition. Watch as the sun glances off golden temples and saffron-robed monks wind their way through the streets.

Markets of amber-coloured spices, lush green tea fields and the vibrant threads of traditional garments dazzle. On this journey, Myanmar’s arresting history unfolds as carefully-crafted tours and lectures draw you in.

The Cabins

The Cabins

Cool, comfortable and filled with light, our cabins make the perfect sanctuary after a day under the Myanmar sun. Here you wake to wide river views and stretch out in style.

Little touches of luxury can be found at every turn. Distinctive local weavings and wood carvings adorn the walls. Bright flashes of exotic flowers punctuate the scene. Spacious en-suite bathrooms gleam.
