Pandaw River Expeditions

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

For many years Pandaw has been a pioneer of river cruising in Asia and they operate a number of vessels between Ho Chi Minh City and Siem Reap in Cambodia and vice versa.

Each ship is a fine replica of a 1920s river steamer with teak decks and brass adornments creating a wonderfully colonial atmosphere. Air-conditioned, teak-lined double or twin cabins all have en suite facilities making for a comfortable stay on board. The boats have spacious dining rooms and cocktail bars, as well as glorious, partly-shaded sun decks from which to view the river.

An eight-day itinerary explores the Delta’s floating markets and Cham villages before crossing the border into Cambodia. Enjoy the capital of Phnom Penh by cyclo and the floating villages of the Tonle Sap en route to Siem Reap. This is a great option for those who enjoy a leisurely, unhurried pace and prefer to see a number of destinations without changing accommodation. Prices include all excursions, full board (with soft drinks, local beers and local spirits) and even tips for the crew.
