Pandaw River Expeditions

Fleet information and picture Galleries

Cruising Asia’s most famous Rivers; the mighty Mekong, Red River, Irrawaddy River and the Chindwin – a Pandaw River Expedition is not an ocean cruise. Dressing up for dinner is not compulsory nor is there a ‘captain’s table’!

The atmosphere on board is friendly and informal, more like a party on board a private yacht than a cruise ship. Mostly everything is included in the pre-paid price and there are no hidden extras for shore excursions. Even most of your drinks are included in the price of your ticket!

With a crew passenger ratio of 1:2 there is an incredibly high level of personalised service and care. For all these reasons, passengers keep coming back and exploring more of a lost South-East Asia.

Pandaw River Expeditions have 15 vessel’s cruising in China, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar (Burma) with itineraries ranging from short 3 night cruises to the longer 10-14 nights.

Pandaw’s popular, mostly unique colonial-era character ships, are well known for their friendly and efficient crew and definitive style. There is an itinerary that will fit any budget or style you may wish for.

All of the Pandaw ships have ultra-shallow drafts which enable travel to remote areas, otherwise unreachable by other passenger-carrying vessels.

Our Pandaw experts have travelled to most Pandaw destinations and know the ships and area very well. You are very welcome to call and discuss in detail the variety of itineraries on offer.
