We joined the RV Mekong Pandaw in Kampong Cham for a 3 night cruise to Phnom Penh. I wish we had booked for 7 nights! Amazing staff, gorgeous staterooms, a welcoming and comfortable sun deck and saloon bar. The ship is beautiful and was the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by. Thank you Pandaw for a truly fantastic holiday experience. Your staff are courteous, hard working and lots of fun to be around. Brilliant.

Manage to squeeze both the 7 night Mandalay Pagan and the Irrawaddy Delta expeditions within my 28 days visa permit. Just as nice, comfortable and exiting as my previous experience with Pandaw. The Delta expedition was introduced this year and was unforgettable. A machine breakdown was professionally handled by the Pandaw crew and added som extra excitement to the expedition. Highly recommended!

We have just returned from our trip to Mynamar cruising the Irrawaddy...this should be called an adventure!! Fantastic time with amazing crew, super guide, Harry, great chefs and last but not least our fellow passengers! Great exploring though some a bit hairy especially on the bus trip to elephant camp but laughed about later over our nightly cocktails! Villages, temples, markets, watching children play in river, cocktails on beach....I could go on for hours!! An adventure never to be forgotten...thank you Pandaw!

Truly a life changing experience- blessed beyond words i was selected to take this trip all paid inc flights. I am 32yrs and was the youngest onboard travelling solo but by the end of my 7day cruise i made friends not only with fellow tourists but the amazing crew Aung Kyaw Min, Myo and Salai to name a few!. Service was faultless always smiling and made me want to stay longer! I rode my first motorbike in Myanmar thanks to our purser Myo -beautiful memories i will never forget. It was an honour and a great privilege i got to cross paths with beautiful souls and be memorized by the beauty of Myanmar culture and its people. Truly greatful Pandaw cruises- absolutely will cruise again soon with my family Godwilling.
Kind regards
Kina Sheck from Melbourne Australia.

We travelled up the Mekong last week on the Tonle Pandaw and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The cabins were comfortable and the excursions well-considered. The staff were charming.
The food was good (maybe too much!)

From Pandaw

The Pandaw experience is all about exploring remote and often hard-to-navigate rivers and coasts in specially-designed luxury small ships.

Each ship, hand-crafted in brass and teak, is an object of beauty in itself. A Pandaw adventure is very different from that offered on an ocean-going cruise. The ships are small scale, and the atmosphere is informal, and very friendly.

Our Ships

We have sixteen beautifully crafted Pandaw ships in operation that we built ourselves – plus our first coastal ship the Andaman Explorer. Each ship, hand-finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen, is itself an object of great beauty.

The secret of our success is that, whilst luxury and comfort are ever-present, on our ships it is the colonial-era character and friendly atmosphere that predominate. All our Pandaws have ultra-shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas, which are unreachable by other passenger-carrying vessels, let alone overland.
