Pandaw Laos

Cruise company: The Irrawaddy Flotilla

Cruise type: Luxury, Sharing, 10 cabins

Destinations: Laos - Laos

The 14th ship in the Pandaw fleet, the RV Laos Pandaw will feature just 10 staterooms and a crew-to-guest ratio of 2 to 1. The Laos Pandaw will feature a same shallow draught for additional maneuverability during low water season, along with an engine that has been designed with greater horsepower in mind in order to successfully sail the remote Upper Mekong.

Pandaw River Cruises is leading the push to expand river cruise offerings throughout Asia. Beginning in November 2015, the luxury river cruise company will offer the first 10-night sailings through the Laos Mekong aboard the brand-new RV Laos Pandaw. Pandaw is the first river cruise operator to offer voyages that cross the entirety of Laos. Currently, Pandaw has set the RV Laos Pandaw’s 10-night sailings. On these 10 day journeys, guests will spend two nights at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang, noted for its numerous authentic pagodas or “Vat”, some of which date back to the 16th century and beyond. There are also a number of traditional Lao houses in Luang Prabang that co-exist along with Colonial European architecture introduced during the 18th and 19th centuries.Laos. Departures will operate from November 1, 2015 to January 30, 2016. Pandaw will resume departures later in 2016 for the following season, though dates have yet to be announced. A reverse itinerary will also operate from Chiang Khong, Thailand to Vientiane.



Finished in brass and teak, the main and upper deck rooms are very spacious at 168 square feet (15.6 sqm) - exception Zawgyi Pandaw 150 square feet (14 sqm). Much loved by all our passengers we have ensured that with each ship we build the stateroom remains the same. Our cabins do not have mini-bars, satellite TV’s, internet or phones. Pandaw passengers usually want to escape from the tiresome features found in international business hotels.
