Owned by The Strand Yangon, this new river vessel gently meanders its way from Mandalay to Bagan on the Irrawaddy river. “The vessel is beautifully appointed with elegant spaces to lounge and sleep in, as well as top-notch food.”
Recently refurbished, the legendary grande dame now sparkles. “This was unbelievable luxury—a gem. Classic rooms, gorgeously furnished, with formal, efficient service made this a memorable stay. I enjoyed walking around the area, admiring the grand colonial buildings, many in disrepair, which added to their charm.”

Rangoon Tea House
2nd Floor, 77-79 Pansodan Street (Lower Middle Block), Yangon
Just a short walk from The Strand, this cool, contemporary restaurant is inspired by traditional Burmese tea shops and offers modern interpretations of Myanmar cuisine— from classic mohinga noodles with onion fritters and fishcakes to Rangoon curry sets with Shan salsa and balachaung (similar to our own belacan shrimp paste). “It is an excellent Myanmar-Mod cafe, with great local dishes. Try everything!”
