Due to the ongoing situation in Burma, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all scheduled Burma departures until further notice. To read the full statement by Paul Strachan, please click here.

In the meantime, we will be focussing our efforts in Burma on our Pandaw Clinics appeal which is providing medical assistance to those injured in the violence. More details about our humanitarian work and our appeal can be found at

You can still register your interest for our expeditions below and we will contact you to discuss your arrangement once travel to Burma returns.

An unforgettable Irrawaddy river cruise

Our Irrawaddy river cruises take you into the heart of the Burmese culture. The Irrawaddy flows from north to south through the country of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma.) It is the country's largest river and most important commercial waterway which is why no trip to this majestic country is complete without a Pandaw Irrawaddy cruise.

The Irrawaddy River is 2,210km long, it's the 55th longest river in the world, and discharges a staggering 13,000 litres of water into the Andaman sea per second.

Life onboard a Pandaw Irrawaddy cruise is just as relaxed as the Burmese people themselves. Our cruise itineraries will allow you to experience the true warmth of the locals as well as the beautiful, varying landscapes of such a fascinating country. We will take you to the lush teak plantations around Prome and the desert country south of Pagan. You will visit small villages and towns, monasteries and temples and see local agriculture and manufacturing first hand. Our cruises really allow you to get off the beaten track and see a side of Myanmar unseen by many tourists.

The staterooms aboard all of our Irrawaddy cruise ships are spacious and come with fresh fruits and flowers on arrival. You will find kimonos, slippers and spa-branded amenities in your room to make your stay that little bit more special. Our staff do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable as you'll need. We provide a peaceful setting to help you unwind and fully appreciate your surroundings, as well as arranged talks and demonstrations from the local people.
