RV Pandaw II

Our luxury RV Pandaw II river cruises set sail along the Irrawaddy, taking you to spectacular scenery unlike anywhere else. Thanks to its shallow draft, the vessel can journey to lesser-known spots that other boats cannot – so you can see the true character of beautiful Myanmar (Burma). At 200 ft. the RV Pandaw II offers spacious accommodation with plenty of areas to relax, dine, drink and enjoy your surroundings.
