Wendy Wu Irrawaddy Voyager Itinerary:

Day 1-2: Fly overnight to Rangoon

Fly overnight to the vibrant city of Rangoon. Depending on your time of arrival the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture.

Day 3: Rangoon

Rangoon, Burma's capital until its relocation to Naypyidaw in 2006, is the heart of Burma's spiritual life and a bustling city full of crumbling colonial charm. Today will be spent exploring this fascinating city. The first visit is to Sule Pagoda and the Chauk Htat Gyi reclining Buddha. Continuing on, stop for photos at Karaweik Hall, a glittering barge palace floating on Kandawgyi Lake, and stroll through Bogyoke Market. Finally explore Shwedagon Pagoda. Purported to have four relics of former Buddhas enshrined within, the pagoda is Burma's most sacred Buddhist site. The complex huge golden stupa dominates the city skyline.

Day 4: Fly to Bagan

Transfer to the airport and fly to Bagan where on arrival you will board your river cruise vessel on which you will spend the next seven nights. Take time today to explore some of the 3,000 temples in Bagan. Sip on a welcome cocktail and take in your new surroundings before settling down for dinner served in the bistro-style dining room.

Day 5: Bagan

Spend the morning exploring some of Bagans 2,000 temples, exploring their cool interiors. They are all individual, from imposing to graceful and intricate to simple - there is plenty to see. There will also be a visit to a lacquer workshop so you can see the process behind this traditional craft of the region.

Day 6: Pakokku

Leave the ship to visit the river port of Pakokku. Hop on board a tuk tuk to explore the centre of this interesting and friendly town before a relaxed stroll through the local market.

Day 7: Yandabo

Continue cruising leisurely upstream. Today's visit will be to the village of Yandabo and its school, built through kind donations. The people here specialise in pot-making and you'll be able to see the villagers at work before browsing the local, handcrafter wares.

Day 8: Ava and Amarapura

Arrive in Mandalay and transfer to Ava to visit the Sagaing Hills. An important religious and monastic centre, numerous monasteries and hermitages nestle amongst the greenery of the hills and perch along the ridge above the river making for an impressive sight. Drive to Amarapura to visit the magnificent wooden Bagaya Monastery and the U Bein Bridge, the world's longest teak wood bridge.

Day 9: Kyauk-myoung

Disembark the cruise ship to visit the potteries close to Kyauk-myoung where well see Burma's famous 50 gallon water pots being made by hand. Sailing on, the next stop will be Khan-Nyat village, home to many Buddhist monasteries and an orphanage.

Day 10: Mingun

Wake up to the ever-changing river bank surroundings and take a leisurely breakfast outside on the deck to admire the passing views. Enjoy a morning walking tour of the village of Mingun home to what would have been, had it been completed, the world's largest temple - the Mingun Pagoda. Though incomplete, it is still a monumental structure - 50 metres tall, 72 metres wide and constructed entirely of brick. You'll also see the huge Mingun Bell and the Mingun Old Peoples Home.

Day 11: Disembark in Mandalay

Bid farewell to the crew of your cruise ship and transfer to the airport to fly to Rangoon. On arrival the rest of the day will be at leisure for you to continue your explorations of the city.

Day 12: Fly to UK
