The ten and seven-night cruises, which run through till March next year, have already sold out on most departures. To cope with the extra demand, the nine stateroom RV Kha Byoo Pandaw has been replaced with the 18 cabin RV Kindat, built in 2014.

The RV Kindat Pandaw perfects Pandaw’s concept of a light-weight two-deck shallow draft vessel capable of navigating challenging river conditions. Cabins are roomy and out door deck space surpasses any other ships on the river.

The Kindat offers Pandaw’s unique flexible bistro space offering passenger indoor or outdoor dining depending on inclination or season. Individual or group dining available on request.

Pandaw’s Upper Irrawaddy expedition passes through the Irrawaddy River’s 2nd and 3rd defiles, sailing upstream to and downstream between Bagan and Burma’s ancient capital Mandalay the market town of Katha, where the writer George Orwell penned his novel Burmese Days.

Mountain bikes are available on this ship for un-led explorations into off the beaten track Burma. Or explore these delightful villages and enchanting small towns on foot with our expert guides.
