Dining onboard includes a breakfast buffet and a sit-down lunch and dinner. Cuisine is served and prepared by highly skilled chefs and features exotic and organic produce.

Pandaw's vessels were specifically built for river cruising, and this is evident from the manner in which the decks have been laid out.

Pandaw Cruises

A river cruise with Pandaw River Expeditions will undoubtedly be one of the most exciting, charming and yet relaxed holidays you will ever take. River cruises with Pandaw are characterized by a convivial and informal atmosphere. Pandaw River Expeditions was founded by the Scot Paul Strachan after he revived the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company in 1995, and he still keeps the business very much in the family and ensures that everything is ship-shape. All of Pandaw’s 12 ships are luxurious; your trip will have the feel of a private yachting holiday. One of the best things about Pandaw River Expeditions is their passion for utter tranquillity and being with nature; on board you will never be disturbed by a neighbour’s TV and you will spend the majority of your time relaxing outdoors in the friendly climate.

Go on a real Adventure with Pandaw River Cruises

It is not only the amazing destinations that make a holiday with Pandaw so exciting, but equally the journey you undertake to get there. Pandaw’s ships have ultra-shallow drafts which allow them to navigate the sandbars and reach the most remote regions. These amazing stop-offs are inaccessible to other ships and are even hard to reach by land! Some of Pandaw’s cruises can only take place in monsoon season, as this is the only time when the waters are high enough, and the dramatic colours of the changing skies will be fantastic. Pandaw River Expeditions sails through Burma, India, Vietnam, and Cambodia on the Mekong, Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers. You will see the breathtaking Himalayas, visit bustling markets and deltas, and experience the tranquillity of the sacred Ganges and the Taj Mahal. All the ports of call are culturally rich – think wondrous monuments, glittering treasures, soaring golden spires and whole monasteries intricately carved out of wood.
