The RV Pandaw 1947, operates on the Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers in Vietnam.
Throughout Myanmar’s history, river travel has been an important part of everyday life. Today is no different and we recommend incorporating a river journey into your itinerary.
There are local ferries that make the journey on the Ayeyarwaddy River between Bagan and Mandalay in one day. If you have a bit more time and want to enjoy the journey in style, there are several more up-market options, as well as longer trips to more remote regions of the country.
The Paukan takes its name from Paukan Rarma, a city dating back to 846 AD which later became Bagan. It can carry 55 passengers, who are looked after by a crew of 30, and has 29 ensuite cabins situated on three decks.
With the comfort and personality for which Belmond is famous, Belmond Road to Mandalay is the most comfortable vantage point from which to absorb the surrounding serene beauty by water.
The atmosphere on board one of the IFC Pandaw vessels is relaxed and informal. All cabins are air-conditioned and contain a shower room with hot and cold water and windows that open whilst beds are traditional teak ships cots.
The Sanctuary Ananda is a luxury, five star boat custom-made with tradition in mind. Infusing both contemporary luxury with authentic Burmese design, the boat offers a more intimate and boutique sailing experience along the Ayeyarwady.
The Belmond Orcaella is another beautiful vessel belonging to the Belmond (formerly Orient Express) portfolio of luxury offerings in Myanmar. The elegant four-deck river cruiser maintains the group’s reputation for delivering unparalleled service and great attention to detail.
