Kaladan Pandaw

As more and more river cruise ships are announced, mainly for the now congested Pagan to Mandalay sector, Pandaw are maintaining their edge going further and deeper into the real Burma. As other ships get bigger and bigger Pandaw ships get smaller and smaller! Pandaw is going back to how they started nearly twenty years, offering real river recces, utterly pioneering experiences into areas that have never seen tourists before. In order to keep weight down there are just two decks with only 10 staterooms, a choice of indoor or outdoor bistro-style dining and all the traditional touches that make the Pandaw experience special.

Katha Pandaw

Our beautifully crafted Pandaw ships were built locally in Saigon. Each ship, hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty.
