Pandaw River Expedition - Introduction
With ten luxury ships exploring the great rivers of South-East Asia, Pandaw offers a real adventure experience whilst travellers are cushioned with incredible comfort, fine dining, great cocktails and choice wines, not to mention extraordinary levels of service.
All the ships were built new and designed and finished as replicas of colonial river steamers. These small ships have the highest space-to-passenger ratio of any ships afloat – the much-loved staterooms are 170 square feet and finished in teak and brass.
A Pandaw river expedition is not like an ocean-going cruise. There is no dressing up for dinner and no 'captain's table'. The atmosphere onboard is very friendly and informal, more like a party on a private yacht than a cruise ship. Nearly everything is included in the price and there are no hidden extras for excursions. Even the drinks are included in the price of the ticket. There is an incredibly high level of personal service and care aboard, with a crew passenger ratio of 1:2. For these reasons, passengers keep coming back and exploring more of a lost South-East Asia.
Pandaw runs expeditions on three great South-East Asian rivers: Burma, on the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers and through Cambodia and Vietnam on the Mekong River.
These three great rivers traverse mountains, forests, jungles and plains. Along with their banks are the vestiges of lost civilizations and vibrant contemporary societies. Any Pandaw expedition contains a stimulating mix of history, art and culture whilst exploring modern-day life.
At the same time, on a Pandaw you will penetrate deep into the interiors of these little developed countries and explore pristine eco environments unreachable by anything other than a riverboat.
