The RV Kha Byoo Pandawwill sail from Pagan to Mandalay and on to Bhamo, the most northerly navigable point on the Irrawaddy, 1000 miles from Rangoon. Highlights will include a passage through the 3rd and 2nd Irrawaddy Gorges, visits to enchanting local towns, most favourite being Katha, once home to George Orwell and setting for Burmese days. We then continue to enter the awesome 1st defile with its cataracts and towering gorges.

We are pleased to announce for all departures from July 2015, drinks (local soft drinks, local beer and spirits) will be included in the price of the Mandalay Pagan Packet and Mandalay Pagan 1 or 2 night Short Cruises. This will mean that from July 2015 onwards, drinks will be included on ALL Pandaw owned ships.

Our new Laos Mekong expedition has proved very popular, with some dates nearly sold out. We are pleased to confirm we have been able to extend the operating season by a month to the end of February.

The Pandaw Charity was established following Cyclone Nargis in 2008 when Pandaw ships, converted to floating hospitals, and their crews saved so many lives. Since then over twelve schools have been built and the UK-registered charity operate seven Pandaw Clinics in middle Burma which provide an average of 5,000 free treatments a month with a full time team of twenty medics, paramedics and pharmacists. This is entirely sponsored by donations from Pandaw passengers and a profit share from Pandaw River Expeditions. We would like to thank everyone who has made a donation in the past; your support has and is making a real difference.
