River cruise line Pandaw, announced two new itineraries on Myanmar’s Salween River and the Irrawaddy Delta starting from October 2016.
The ultra-low draft Kalay Pandaw will navigate through the shallow waters of the Salween River – Myanmar’s longest river.

Some of the highlights of the itinerary include Moulmein, the first British capital of Myanmar, the war graves at Thanbyuzayat and much more.
The second itinerary which explores the Irrawaddy Delta, which was originally vast wetland and jungles.
Pandaw will operate the Katha Pandaw on its Irrawaddy Delta program which was built in Vietnam in 2012.
The Katha Pandaw has 16 staterooms ranging over two decks and with open dining suited to the Southeast Asian climate, this is one of the most popular ships in the Pandaw fleet.
