2 More River Boats For Pandaw River Expeditions

Pandaw River Expeditions has announced the addition of 2 new river cruisers that will join its fleet sailing in Myanmar next year. The Asian river line is constructing the shallow-draft RV Kindat Pandaw and RV Kalaw Pandaw at the Sinmalike shipyard, which will enable it to operate in extreme low water conditions on the Irrawaddy River.

 

Both vessels are replicas of the ships of the old Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. Offering 20 deluxe staterooms and spacious promenade decks, the ships hark back to an era of colonial exploration and nostalgia with teak and brass finishes in traditional Pandaw style. Al fresco dining and bars take advantage of the tropical environment for a truly immersive experience.

 

Operating the new 7-night Mandalay Pagan Packet service from July 2014, the RV Kindat Pandaw and RV Kalaw Pandaw will cruise between both cities exploring the small riverside villages and towns. Cruisers will be able to take in the sights and sounds of heritage sites including the picturesque Sagaing Hills and the lost capitals of Ava and Amarapura.

 

Incorporated in Singapore, Pandaw River Expeditions was one of the pioneers of river cruising in Myanmar after World War II, starting with an original, beautifully-restored Clyde-built steamer. Today, the company operates a fleet of 10 modern river cruisers on the waterways of Asia, sailing itineraries on the Chindwin, Ganges, Irrawaddy, Mekong and Rajang Rivers.
