Life on deck
While the Anawrahta is the perfect stage, the star of the show is the river. Rising early, you make your way to the Sundeck, just as the first rays of gold touch the surface of the Ayeyarwady. A fisherman casts his net, throwing shimmering droplets into the morning light. After enjoying this unforgettable view – and a strong coffee – you are ready to join an open-air yoga or Tai Chi class.
You pass all manner of other craft, from simple fishing canoes to boats crowded with fresh produce, household goods, giggling school children.
Villagers come out to wave. Water buffaloes watch you warily. You keep a lookout for the river’s most famous residents, the Ayeyarwady dolphins.
When it’s time for lunch, you join your fellow guests in the Hintha Hall dining room. The waiters – who now greet you like an old friend – serve tantalizing dishes from throughout Burma. As you learn about the sophisticated cuisine, you understand more about this nation’s cultural diversity.
Sunset finds you and your friends in the Kipling’s bar enjoying freshly made cocktails – and freshly inspiring views. As the river turns from blue to violet, you understand Rudyard Kipling’s long-ago nostalgia: “If you’ve ‘eard the East a-callin,’ you won’t never ‘need naught-else.”
Make sure the remaining validity of your passport is a minimum of six months when you return from the trip and that you are not running out of blank visa pages.
