Ayeyarwady River, Myanmar

#7 of 52 in Nature in Myanmar
The largest river in the country, Ayeyarwady River has been a site of an immense historical and cultural value for hundreds of years. An important vessel for transport and trade, especially during the British colonial period, the river's vast network of irrigation canals have been vital in shaping the country into what it is today. Take a tour on a boat to enjoy the view of the numerous colorful temples, and see people working and living their everyday lives on the river's banks. You'll get a true sense of the river Rudyard Kipling called the "road to Mandalay" in his famous poem.
