CLASSIC MEKONG REVIEW

MARGARET SEWELL AND WENDY PURBA, AUSTRALIA, THE CLASSIC MEKONG, AUG 2017

Dear Din Sotha, Vong Sokhom and all the crew of RV Mekong Pandaw,

My daughter Wendy Purba and I have just completed the Classic Mekong cruise from Saigon to Siem Reap. This was my third cruise with Pandaw but Wendy's first. I want to thank you for making this such an enjoyable experience for us with the usual friendly, professional, conscientious thoughtful attention to the needs of guests that I have come to expect from Pandaw. Their honesty is something I take for granted. As always, nothing was a trouble. I am now missing my early morning cup of tea brought to my cabin by Marady, and I forgive Sophorn for his remarks about grandmas. Hamnes, I will miss you, too, when I have to look after my house in Canberra. We had so much fun and lots of laughs.

Guests can always feel safe in the hands of Pandaw Captains and their crews. From years of experience they know the rivers very well.

The food was great, as always, and I'm sure everyone appreciated the efforts of the galley staff to satisfy individual requirements. Wendy loves Asian food and was delighted with the menu. She has now returned to her husband and daughter after an amazing week. I will fly to Luang Prabang on Tuesday to join the Laos/China cruise departing Thursday. I'm sure it will be another wonderful, remote Pandaw experience. I am already thinking about my next Pandaw cruise/s in Burma in 2018 if my health and finances will allow.

We were both so sad to say goodbye. I know you meet thousands of people each year but I hope you will not forget us too soon.

Sokhom, I'm sure you will have a long and happy career as a Pandaw Purser. They are such terrific people. Good luck.

Thank you again,

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Sewell
