CHINDWIN RIVER

The Chindwin River flows down from the Burma – Assam border area, its waters haven risen in the Himalayan foothills. It is the main tributary of the Irrawaddy and is 1,207km long. Of this about 1000km is navigable, but only in vessels that have the shallowest drafts.

The Song Hong or Red River rises deep in Yunnan mountains of south-west China to flow 714 miles (1,149km) across Northern Vietnam and to discharge into the the Gulf of Tonkin.

IRRAWADDY DELTA

The Irrawaddy Delta covers an area of over 1000 square miles with Rangoon, its most famous port and capital of all Burma from 1886 to 2005. Originally a vast inhabited wetland and jungle, much of it was cleared and cultivated by the British who annexed Lower Burma in 1855.

THE MERGUI ARCHIPELAGO

If you're seeking the ultimate escape on the water, this is it. The Mergui Archipelago is the realm of fishermen and sea gypsies – nomadic Moken tribespeople who make their living from the sea by catching fish and trading pearls that they find beneath the waves.

TONLE RIVER

The Mekong’s main tributary is the Tonle River that flows down from the great Tonle Sap or “great lake” in central Cambodia that stretches100km from end to end. In the rainy season it quadruples in size flooding much of the surrounding plain.
