The Shwedagon Pagoda** in Rangoon, the temples in Bagan** and the Taj Mahal** are like silent echoes from a distant era.

Highlights of this cruise:

  • Myanmar: in the land of the golden pagodas.
  • A spectacular building: the legendary Taj Mahal**.
  • Exclusive sailing trip through the islands of Langkawi**.
