Sail aboard a restored teak riverboat up the meandering Kaladan River amidst water buffalo, river birds, paddy fields, and soak in a life of yesteryear. Up river, Mrauk U Princess is a gateway to the ancient kingdom of Arakan. Explore 500 year-old temples and stupas scattered across the hills of the former capital, and journey out to the tattooed, fur and bone clad Chin tribes by boat. A traditional spa, swimming pool, and authentic Rakhine cuisine adds to the magical experience.
