Travellers with a love of cruise and safari holidays should be checking airport transfers to Burma in time for the end of next year. That's when Sanctuary Ananda, cruise and safari specialist Sanctuary Retreats’ newest ship, is due to set sail. Burma's largest airport is Mandalay, which has buses to shuttle you directly or near to your hotel or intended destination. The all-suite ship will offer guests a chance to share Burma's fresh tourism experience now that the country is opening itself up to the rest of the world.

Named after Bagan's stunning Ananda Temple, Ananda also translates in Sanskrit as “extreme happiness” - one of the highest states of being. The ship offers eight exciting itineraries, including three, four and seven-night discovery cruises between Bagan and Mandalay. It also boasts seven, 10 and 11-night exploration cruises which give guests more time to explore the Upper Ayeyarwady river towards the gorges and Bhamo. The ship offers lots of time to mix must-see sights with smaller villages to meet the indigenous peoples and see local crafts being fashioned first hand. Tourists can savour the fun of local transport, such as horse-drawn carts, trishaws and small boats. Sanctuary Ananda can accommodate up to 48 guests in 20 spacious suites.

Guests can enjoy choosing between international cuisine and a variety of delicious local dishes chosen to mirror the eclectic nature of Burma's cuisine from one of its 135 ethnicities.
