Pandaw Cruise What does Price include?

Vietnam - Cambodia: Ho Chi Minh City - Phnom Penh - Siem Reap Burma: Mandalay - Tan Kyi Taung Mountain and Salé - Prome / Yangon


By 2012 we have ten beautifully crafted Pandaw ships in operation that we built ourselves. Each Pandaw Cruise, hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty. The secret of our success is that on our ships, whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that predominate. All our Pandaws have ultra shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas, which would be unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland.

The cruise exceeded our expectations. The cabin was very comfortable, as were the other on board facilities. The crew were friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. There was at least one on-shore excursion each day. All the locations visited were interesting and the local guides traveling with us were very knowledgeable.

All I can tell you is that the boat is very comfortable, the crew was wonderful and because we were so few (only 25) at the end we felt more like was a wonderful trip!

I did the Pandaw trip from Saigon to Siem Reap in May 2013, and it was outstanding. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The food was great, the cabins spotless and spacious, the crew and guides most attentive, and the on-shore excursions were fabulous. I traveled solo, and didn't feel left out or out of place. The passengers were about 1/3 American. 1/3 Brits, and 1/3 others (Europeans and Australians). They were a great bunch of people apart from four Mormon couples who kept pretty much to themselves.
