Taking a cruise along the Ayeyawady River to observe the daily lives of local people has become popular among travellers since the tourist season started.
Several tourists from Switzerland took the Bagan-Yandapo-Sagaing-Seinpankone-Kyaukmyaung-Tagaung-Moetha-Bhamo-Mandalay-Yangon cruise from 31 December to 8 January.
The journey was arranged by the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and the Golden Myanmar Butterfly Travels and Tours Co. Ltd. Tourists extended their journey to visit the Ayeyawady River and the Chindwin River to observe the villages and the natural scenery at the second defile on the Ayeyawady River, the traditional and social life of the fishermen, the elephant camp, traditional pottery, and the beautiful scenery in the evening along the Ayeyawady River. Tourists have been visiting Myanmar to observe its beautiful landscapes and the traditional culture of ethnic groups on domestic cruise ships during the tourist season.
