Info : Pandaw (Long) Cruises
Pandaw cruises offer the widest selection of cruises in Myanmar, they operate a fleet of fine boats in a variety of styles and sizes. If you enjoy river cruises and have time to spare, their 7-10 day journeys are the ideal way to explore either the more far-flung reaches of The Irrawaddy River (in conjunction with the popular Bagan-Mandalay stretch) or to veer off-the-beaten track to explore the Chindwin River or the Salween River. At Experience Travel Group we offer tailor-made tour’s of Myanmar weaving hotel stays and a range of our unique signature experiences around these wonderful cruise itineraries.
With a range of boats available, Pandaw are able to adapt to most river conditions. This means that they offer 7-10 day cruises that navigate fascinating stretches of Myanmar’s rivers that other cruise companies are unable to. For example, The Chindwin River is shallow in part and usually only reachable in the wet season but Pandaw have low draught boats that will transport you to the remote caves, forested hills and amazing cultural sites in the dry season.
Whether your preferred cruise is aboard the 4 cabin “Kalay Pandaw” or the 20 cabin “Kalaw Pandaw” you can be assured of high quality accommodation, excellent dining and the chance to visit captivating river-side sites and communities that are rarely visited by other tourists. One of these longer cruise itineraries could take you past dramatic gorges, rarely seen pagoda’s or offer you the chance to step back in time in Katha, the setting for George Orwell’s “Burmese Days”.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
