Review of RV Anawrahta

The ship Anawrahta cruises on Irrawaddy River with departures from homeports Bagan, Yangon and Mandalay. The riverboat is named after Burmese nation’s founder - King Anawrahta (born in 1014). Anawrahta dynasty lasted for a total of 33 years, between 1044-1077, which marked a period of spreading of Theravada Buddhism throughout Myanmar. RV Anawrahta is now considered one of the most beautiful cruise vessels on Irrawaddy River. It is definitely the best choice Burma luxury river travel vacation option, providing the market's largest cabin space and the highest crew to passenger ratio.

Company's fleet consists of classic (traditionally designed and built riverboats), each decorated with unique, colonial-style and hand-made furniture. RV Anawrahta is a remarkable vessel resembling a British-Colonial paddle-steamer.

The 141 m2 (1518 ft2) Hintha Hall Restaurant is located on the Terrace and seats all passengers at the same time.
