New Sagaing Pandaw

Launched in Vietnam at the beginning of the year, the new RV Sagaing Pandaw will transfer to Burma (Myanmar) next year to sail the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers in response to the increasing demand for quality river expeditions.

The new RV Saigon Pandaw has only 30 classic Pandaw staterooms and is the perfect expedition vessel for exploring the upper stretches of the Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers. 

Two week cruises on the Irrawaddy begin at from Prome (Pyay) and cruise up to the Upper Irrawaddy and then back to Mandalay. 

Ten night ‘Golden Land’ cruises will operate downstream from Mandalay to Prome (Pyay). 

A special cruise, offered once a year, sails from Rangoon to Mandalay and on the Chindwin. 

One of the major issues that make the Sagaing Pandaw very attractive to many cruisers is that the ship is only available to individual travelers and not groups. 

Early bird discounts of 10% are available for bookings made prior to one year before departure.
