???The Salween is the longest river in Burma at 1,749 miles from its source in Tibet and only navigable for larger vessels for about 100 miles between its mouth at Martaban and Hpa-an. However, there is much to explore in this undiscovered area of Burma: Moulmein, the first British capital of Burma, with some fascinating old churches and splendid royal Buddhist monasteries; the war graves at Thanbyuzayat; beautiful scenery and charming undiscovered villages; the Karen capital of Hpa-an and the dramatic Mount Zwekabin with its Karen dancing school. Plus, Pandaw guests will stop at the Golden Rock Pagoda of Kyaikhtiho and Pegu with its splendid Shwemadaw Pagoda, the tallest in Burma.

?Originally a vast inhabited wetland and jungle, much of which was cleared and cultivated by the British who annexed Lower Burma in 1855, the Irrawaddy Delta became the rice basket of Asia, effectively feeding much of the Indian Raj. During this period of prosperity a number of rice towns developed in the colonial style. The most famous of which was Bassein. By the 1920s The Irrawaddy Flotilla Company operated over 100 creek steamers across the Delta connecting these towns and villages at a time when there were neither roads nor bridges.
