The Irrawaddy River | Myanmar Burma
Irrawaddy and Ayeyarwady Rivers are the longest rivers in Myanmar. They flow from the North to the Southeast and originate in the Kachin Rivers at the junction of the N'mai and Mali Rivers. Irrawaddy has five affluents, one of which is the Chindwin Rivier. In the past, the Irrawaddy was still used as the major traffic artery and you can see regular boats with heaps of tea wood.
Prior to the use of motor ships, the local people tied the pieces of wood into a large rack and drove down the rivers. Irrawaddy Rivers links the city of Mandalay and Bagan with Yangon, the biggest and most important national and global city. Because of their rich past, Mandalay and Bagan are two of the most visited touristic areas.
Myanmar's second biggest town, Mandalay was the former king's capitol. It was home to over 10,000 buddhistic shrines, palagodas and convents, of which about 2,200 remained.
