We had a very pleasant trip with a very clean and technically good ship. The crew (staff) were all friendly and we were taken to our booked place. Unfortunately, the seats on the deck were occupied by tourists with jackets or other objects. It's a shame that hardly anyone has taken a seat on the loungers. The food on board was delicious and appropriate to the circumstances. We had enough to eat and even a dessert. The arrival port is unfortunately not in Bagan or New Bagan but about 20KM from Bagan. Taxi is approximately 18,000 MMK to New Bagan. Please note that the Tourist Entrance Fee of 25,000 MMK is payable immediately upon arrival at the port.

Smooth ride, delicious food. The crew is really nice and helpful. The sights along the river are not the most, however the visit to a small village with pottery and the great sunset in the end make up for it. Seats were comfortable, however there should be more seats on deck with shadow.

Tout s'est parfaitement déroulé. Départ a l'heure, après embarquement de tous les passagers. Dépôt des bagages. Sièges attribué s a l'intérieur, zone climatisée, placement libre sur le pont (transats au soleil, tables et chaises protégées du soleil. Petit déjeuner, lunch et tea time bien, avec café thé et jus de fruit. La bière est vendue a un prix très correct, comparable a celui trouve en ville. Bref, une façon sympa de relier Mandalay a Bagan en tentant de découvrir la vie quotidienne sur le fleuve. Le trajet a effectivement duré plus de 10 heures, le bateau devant louvoyer constamment pour éviter les bancs de sable déjà bien présents en ce début mars.
