Pandaw River Expeditions
The Pandaw experience is all about exploring remote and often hard-to-navigate rivers and coasts in specially-designed luxury small ships. The Old Irrawaddy Flotilla Company was revived in 1995 by the Burma historian Paul Strachan, who is a Scot. They are the first since the Second World War to offer pioneering cruises on Burma's spectacular Irawaddy River, reaching Bhamo, one thousand miles from the sea, and went on to be the first on the stunningly attractive Chindwin River.
Each ship among, its fleet of 16 ships is beautifully hand-crafted in brass and teak, and is object of beauty in itself. A Pandaw adventure is very different from that offered on an ocean-going cruise. The ships are small scale, and the atmosphere is informal, and very friendly. Pandaw specializes in itineraries that feature remote, hard-to-reach destinations.
