Coral Expeditions To Explore Myanmar
Myanmar (Burma) is fast becoming the hottest cruise destination in Asia with several cruise lines adding itineraries to the historic and still vastly unexplored country in the 2016-17 wave season. The latest ship setting sail to Myanmar is Coral Expedition's Coral Discoverer, which will feature the emerging destination as part of the cruise line's seven Southeast Asia itineraries.
Famous for its immersive experiences, Coral Expedition's small ship Asian voyages will cover the coastlines of Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia. The itineraries will include historic towns, stunning marine parks and pristine islands that can only be accessed by small ships. On board you'll experience local Asian flavours with modern Australia cuisine with wine and beer included in your fare. All shore activities and excursions are also included in your cruise.
One Southeast Asia itinerary to note is the 12-day Singapore to Yangon 'A Passage to lost Myanmar' voyage, which takes in Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. Guests will spend six nights exploring the fascinating coastline of Myanmar, including the temple-studded Irrawaddy River and Mergui Archipelago. Situated in the Andaman Sea, the Mergui Archipelago has only been open to tourism since 1996 and consists of 800 islands. Another popular destination is Thanbyuzayat cemetery in Mawlamyine where cruisers can visit the Burma World War II Railway Memorial.
