|This time of year is an ideal time to enjoy an expedition in Burma or Indochina. Not only are the cruise prices lower, but it’s a time of year when you can savour the great sights – such as Pagan or Halong Bay – without the crowds of tourists that travel in the peak season. You get more time, more space and more peace and quiet to explore at your own pace.
The high water levels caused by the summer rains create stunning landscapes of lush green riverbanks, woodland and countryside. From the comfort of the deck, enjoy dramatic sunsets and spectacular rainbows set against the stunning vistas of the great rivers of Asia.
The unique shallow-draft ships allow you to travel further into the heart of the country. For example, we still have some places available on our acclaimed Voyage to Nagaland cruise in September 2016 travelling beyond Homalin to visit the Naga people close to the Indian border. No other operator goes anywhere near to the area, or offers such a fascinating upcountry adventure.
The late summer season is a great time to travel solo, as several of our cruises have NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT. The best example is our 20-night Chindwin and Upper Irrawaddy cruise departing 27 August 2016 aboard the popular Kindat Pandaw with significant savings for single travellers.
