Hi there,

I plan to travel to Myanmar on January. I plan on flying into Mandalay and then kayaking the Irrawaddy river down to Old Bagan, or further if time allows. Has anyone taken a boat between the two places before? Do you know roughly how far it is? How long it would take?

Thanks everyone 🙂

Hello there, 
As you know, travelling by boat is the nicest way to get around Myanmar. Going to Old Bagan from Mandalay is absolutely possible and you won’t miss beautiful landscapes on the route. It takes nearly 200 km and over 10 hours to go Bagan by boat.
