Pandaw has announced a new river and ocean voyage that will explore southern Burma, offered on a one-time-only basis, sailing on February 28, 2019.
The 18-night ‘Delta And Coast – All Southern Burma’ expedition will start with a river cruise around the Irrawaddy Delta, followed by an ocean-going cruise in the Mergui Archipelago, from the southern tip of Burma to Yangon. Passengers will travel both by shallow draft wooden ship and refurbished 1960s motor yacht.
Pandaw founder and CEO, Paul Strachan said: “This one-off expedition is a unique opportunity to see these rarely visited regions, which are vastly different from each other, yet both full of cultural and scenic interest. The Irrawaddy Delta’s maze of tributaries, villages and ancient trading ports remain untouched by tourism, and paradise can truly be found in the azure seas, coral reefs and thousand islands of the Mergui Archipelago.”
Prices for the itinerary start from US$6,095 per person, based on twin share. This includes eight nights on RV Katha Pandaw, ten nights on MY Andaman Explorer (pictured), domestic flight from Yangon to Kawthaung, transfers, all excursions, entrance fees, guide services (English language), main meals, drinks, crew gratuities, kayaks & snorkelling equipment. International flights are additional.
