Sailing on the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers Myanmar

Singapore (Singapore) – August 16, 2012 – The new Sagaing Pandaw was launched in Vietnam last January and is currently plying the Mekong as the Saigon Pandaw. She will transfer to Burma next year to meet increasing demand for quality river expeditions. With thirty classic Pandaw staterooms she is the perfect expedition vessel for exploring the upper reaches of the Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers. This ship is available only to individual travellers and led groups will not be carried.

Our classic fourteen night ‘Irrawaddy’ cruises operate from Prome (Pyay) to the Upper Irrawaddy and back to Mandalay. Ten night ‘Golden Land’ cruises operate downstream from Mandalay to Prome.

About Pandaw:
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 on board 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 your drinks are included in the price of your 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.
