The smallest member of the Pandaw family, the RV Kalay now calls the mighty Salween River its home. As with other Pandaw vessels it is a charming replica of the old Irrawaddy Flotilla fleet and has elegant colonial features in abundance.

RV Kalay is pioneering this little known waterway, playing home to many interesting sights including Hpa-An. The capital of Karen state, Hpa-An has stunning natural scenery, key religious sites and the aura of a traditional countryside settlement.


There are four main deck staterooms offering 17 square meters of space and twin beds, while the larger Owner’s Suite is located on the upper deck and features a double bed. All cabins have en suite bathrooms and panoramic French windows, which allow you to enjoy views along the river in peace.


  • Outdoor dining area on the deck
  • Themed dinners
  • Complimentary tea, coffee, soft drinks and local beer and spirits
  • Complimentary evening canapés


  • Salween River — 7 nights from Yangon to Hpa-An to Yangon.

We haven’t yet had the opportunity to cruise on RV Kalay, but our long-established relationship with Pandaw is a testament to the company’s high quality cruises and the comfortable, characterful vessels in its fleet.
