RV Tonle Pandaw*


Ship Overview

Similar in design to the Pandaw II, the RV Tonle Pandaw plied in Burma for a year (2002/3) before she was sent to service the mighty Mekong. This is where she continues to operate to date. Her magnificent Upper Deck Saloon, sprawling observation decks and elegant dining room have made her a favourite among discerning travellers looking for a luxurious river cruise experience. She received a makeover in 2012 and was reconfigured to include twenty eight amenities-loaded staterooms, a dedicated spa, a well equipped gym and a cosy library. With a short three feet draft, she deftly travels to low water areas, providing unprecedented access to hidden treasures along the way.
