Travelling within Ayeyarwaddy River

Big rivers are very useful not only for agriculture but also for transport and communication. Waterways are being used as means of transportation for both cargos and traveling people since a very long time ago. The Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwaddy) river from south to north up to 1500 kilometers is used for ships and boats (upstream and downstream) for transportation throughout the year.

Approximately 792 kilometers in Chindwin, 177 kilometers in Kaladan, 80 kilometers in the Salween (Thanlwin) can be used for transportation. If you visit the place in the summer, you can also view beautiful blue mountain ranges from the other side of the river than seeing the cool and clear water of the river and white sand dunes. There are also small villages around the region. As the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwaddy) is flowing down alongside the motorway, you can see the river at many places. Ethnic Shan, Kachin, and Burma (Bamar) people are living together harmoniously in villages along the motorway.
