ROL Cruise Recommends…
A stop for some tea
Designed for locals and travellers to enjoy alongside one another, the smell and sights that radiate from the Rangoon Tea House would entice anyone. Serving up traditional Burmese cuisine along with European-inspired cocktails, curries, biryanis as well as tea of all types, a visit through these doors will leave you with the perfect memory of Myanmar.
A breath-taking view
Situated in the former capital Mandalay, lies the impressive figure of Mandalay Hill. Sitting high above ground level, offering you breath-taking views across the planes of the city below, there really is no other view quite like it in all of Mandalay. Pass through temples and pagodas as you travel up the 760ft of hilly paths before reaching the summit to spectate on your efforts. Joined by fellow travellers and practising monks, this culturally-immersive experience is unlike any other.
A window into the Mizo culture
A spiritually significant signpost for Mizo people, the heart-shaped Rih Lake is a magical and tranquil setting that lies close to Rihkhawdar. A deep blue expanse, surrounded by rice paddies and hilly forests, it still remains a key pilgrimage site to this day. A popular spot for swimming, drinking and being merry, it is the perfect location to experience the real Burmese way of life.
Watch the glow of Shwedagon Paya
Situated in Yangon, Shwedagon Paya is one of Buddhism’s most sacred locations and is an adorned in glitters and golds. Boasting in grandeur with its 325ft stupa, pay your respects as it glows orange in the shadow of the setting sun.
