RV Pandaw II

Pandaw Myanmar Cruise

Mandalay: Saggai Lay Kyun Man Aung Jetty Yangon Meeting point: Sule Shangri La Hotel 
9.5 Excellent Based on 6 reviews

Enjoy a luxury, colonial-style Pandaw cruise for an exceptional price and discover the beauty and charms of Burma. RV Pandaw Myanmar Cruise runs through Burma on the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers. The unique river expedition concept evolves from the vestiges of the colonial Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. Our first ships were built here and in Burma we learnt to master river navigation at its worst.  

In addtition, we do our best to support the local domestic economy. We believe that by visiting Burma we are doing something to help as has been proved by the many schools our passengers have built. These cruises are the most acclaimed luxury vacations on the Irrawaddy river.

"first class experience"

This is a first class experience, the boat is beautiful, the crew amazing and the food excellent. Was a very positive experience and would highly recommend. The shore excursions were also well thought out, not too rushed with time to rest in between but just enough to make you feel you were really experiencing village life along the river. Could not praise the overall experience enough.
