Imagine floating down one of the greatest rivers in all of Southeast Asia; gazing over your deck, watching Irrawaddy dolphins swim by, monkeys swinging from tree to tree, all while you sip champagne as the sun sets over the magnificent Mekong River. Welcome to a day on the life of a Pandaw River Cruise, the best of all the Mekong river cruises.
When it comes to luxurious river cruising, there are dozens of options, but we chose Pandaw and boy are we happy with our decision. This boutique luxury river cruise line specializes in bespoke river cruises around Southeast Asia. With twelve beautifully crafted Pandaw ships to choose from, we chose the ultimate river cruise in Southeast Asia, The Mekong River. While you can choose from upstream or downstream, we chose the splendors of the latter, with an adventure from Siem Reap, Cambodia to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam.
After a few days of exploring the splendors of Siem Reap, we boarded our luxury river cruise for a week of culture, gastronomy, and luxurious adventure.
