Boat trip down the Ayeyarwady river 

Kat and Tom had caught the afternoon bus to Mandalay the day before, and, with time limited until we had to collect the Land Rover from Bangkok, booked an immediate boat out the next morning for Bagan. Oversleeping again, we broke the all time Mandalay record for shortest time from bed to boat and boarded just in time, although a phone call from our hotel to the boat company may have helped!
The views were quite cool, but as a mode of transport from Mandalay to Bagan, whether it was worth the $40 is up for debate. Certainly don’t hold out much hope for the complementary food. It was a good experience, and definitely worth doing if money is not an issue.
