March 15: Thayet Myo

Our first full day on the river we visited the town of Thayetmyo, population 108,000 as of 2010. We were transported by horse drawn cart and visited a market and the oldest golf course in Myanmar, established by the British.

This and most of the days on the cruise was between 95 – 103F and above 85% humidity. Thus, this last picture was taken from the shade.

All of our meals were taken on board the ship in air-conditioned comfort. The food was uniformly good, with offerings of fresh fruit, and both Burmese and western dishes. Service was impeccable.
