Classic Irrawaddy Cruise

Enjoy a luxury river cruise on the Irrawaddy through Myanmar aboard one of Pandaw Cruises boutique river vessels.

Cruising Burma's Irrawaddy River with Pandaw Cruises is one of the most relaxing ways to experience a cruise holiday in Myanmar.

The Irrawaddy is a languid river and the pace of life on board is relaxed and informal whilst being full of cultural interest, with shore excursions all included in the cost.

Choose from a range of Burma River Cruise Holidays, from shorter 7-day Pandaw cruises between Bagan and Mandalay, up to 21 day Burma River Cruises which are more 'expeditionary' in nature.

All of our Myanmar River Cruise holidays are totally tailor made around the cruise itinerary and can be tailored to your interests, with pre and post cruise accommodation, touring or beach extensions added to your requirements.

Life on Board Pandaw

Life on board a river cruise is quite different from ocean cruising. Things are very much more informal, with no ‘Captain’s Table' or dressing up for dinner.

Unlike ocean cruising, all excursions and most other things are included in the price, such as drinks and tips for the crew.

With one member of crew per two passengers, the service on board a Pandaw Cruise is incredibly high and very personal.

Things are very relaxed on board a Pandaw River Cruise. There are no unnecessary and wearisome PA announcements and no disturbing TV’s from neighbouring cabins.

Cabins all open onto a social promenade deck, creating a very relaxed and social atmosphere on board.

One of the best things about a Pandaw River Cruise is the amount of space on board, which is said to be the highest per passenger of any ocean or river cruise vessel in the world.

Cabins don’t have minibars – instead there is a bar service on the sundeck from dawn until dusk.

All excursions are included, but there is no compulsion to join in.

A daily briefing updates guests on the cultural activities of the day ahead.

Exclusive Expeditions for Pandaw Club Members

Pandaw have recently introduced special departures exclusive for Pandaw Club Members.

These offer the opportunity to bring like minded people together and for old ship mates to travel together again.

Members only Expeditions are a great chance to relive old experiences and encounter new ones in a more exclusive atmosphere.

A handful of selected departures are available and offer a considerable discount on standard departures as well.

Ask us for details of upcoming departures.

Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?

All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you around the cruise itinerary.

You will have your own private car, driver and guide on any additional excursions you choose to do before or after the cruise.

All shore excursions are done on a group basis with other cruise passengers.

What are the departure dates?

Let us know your preferred dates of travel and we will find the best and most suitable flights to fit your itinerary.

We will organise dates around departure dates with Pandaw Cruises.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to this part of the world.

Typically for Burma, Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines and Emirates would be airlines we would often use.

However, just let us know your preferred airline if you have one. We can organise flights from any regional destination in the UK.

There are no direct flights from the UK to Myanmar currently.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of hotels, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.

We keep on top of hotel developments in Burma from our office in South East Asia and regularly inspect the hotels we use.

Do you cater for Solo Travellers?

Yes, we have many solo travellers and Burma is a very safe, friendly and welcoming destination for those travelling alone.

River cruises in Burma are a popular option for solo travellers, especially with Pandaw Cruises who offer no Single Supplements on many departures.

Why should we book with you and not directly?

Because we are one of Pandaw Cruises top supporters, we have the very best rates to pass on to you, which should make it cheaper than booking directly.

Pandaw Club Members still get all the benefits, plus you have the security of having all of your flights and pre and post cruise accommodation and transportation taken care of.

All of our holidays are priced in Pound Sterling which means you are not exposed to currency fluctuations and poor exchange rates if you are paying for your cruise in US Dollars.

Your holiday also enjoys full financial protection through ATOL and the Travel Trust Association by booking with us.

How long have you been organising holidays to Burma?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to Burma for over 10 years.

Our team has a wealth of combined experience in the industry and our Director has been involved in organising holidays to Burma since the early 1990's.

Our partners on the ground in Burma have over 20 years experience in operating there.

They understand the country extremely well and have a strong infrastructure of staff, guides and vehicles within Burma. We've had the same partnership for over 10 years.

Is it ethical to travel to Burma?

We've faced this question since we started our business and it's been a debated topic for decades.

In our opinion, boycotting Burma only harms local people, disrupts livelihoods and does nothing to dissuade the government to act in one way or another.

The tourism business is vital for local guides and their families and this is who we help support when we send our customers to Burma.
