New Pandaw Adventure Cruise

When Pandaw River Expeditions founder Paul Strachan first ventured up the remote Le Myo River in Burma to the mysterious temple city of Mrauk-U in 1986 he was asked to sign the visitors’ book.

Seven years later he went back and there was still plenty of space to sign again on the same page.
Not many pages have turned since then – which is why Pandaw’s newest river boat, the RV Kaladan Pandaw, still under construction, will make its inaugural cruise up the Le Myo in Burma’s less-travelled far western region on October 2 next year.

Mrauk U, which can still only be reached by river, was once a cosmopolitan centre of high culture and capital of an important kingdom that served as a buffer between India and Burma.

Seven-night cruises will operate between October (2015) and March from Sittwe, capital of Rakhine State. Prices start at USD3500 and include return flights between  Yangon and Sittwe, entrance fees, guides, port charges, main meals, locally made alcoholic beverages and crew gratuities.

Visits will include the Tattoo Villages and Kyauktaw
