to Mandalay - a deluxe river cruiser in Myanmar (Burma), a land of
unspoilt beauty. With the style and comfort for which the Orient-Express
is famous, this journey is the perfect way to explore the fascinating
Ayeyarwady river between Mandalay and Bagan, and can also be combined
with a visit to the colonial capital of Yangon.
Pandaw - a journey on
Burma’s Irrawaddy River is one of life’s great travel experiences.
No vessel could be more appropriate for this than the RV Pandaw. Built
in Scotland in 1947, the Pandaw is the same design as the original
Irrawaddy Flotilla Company steamers.
