The Mekong River is the 12th longest river in the world. Originating from the mountains of Tibet, it flows through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam before flowing into the South China Sea. As you cruise along the Mekong River you...more
What a great cruise from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh! We were exceptionally lucky that this was the first cruise of the season so we had 19 passengers and 33 crew (some of crew were in training).
The service could not be faulted and...More
We went with family and friends on a river cruise with Pandaw from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Phen. The cruise was fantastic thanks to the great boat (very comfortable cabin and great food) and its crew. Shout out to Sam, the purser and...More
My wife and I recently went on the Cambodia to Vietnam river cruise (July 7th - 14th) and had a fantastic time. The staff on board were great, doing everything possible to make our trip enjoyable. The excursions (morning and afternoon) organised by Pandaw were...More
We recently did the 7 day cruise on the Mekong Pandaw from Cambodia to Vietnam, with our 7 and 9 year old daughters. We booked on one of the 'family friendly' cruises that Pandaw runs on specific dates. It was truly one of the best...More
This was a wonderful trip. Seven days of eating the freshest local cuisine, visiting the most amazing local villages, many of which had never had a westerner in their village before! And, at night, partying the night away with other like minded travelers! The cabins...More
We spend 5 days in Myanmar with Pandaw Orient.What a AMAZING experience. The boat was very nice, teak cabins, the food, the scenery, the staff was great. I cannot believe how nice they were. I am sorry we booked for only 5 days, for sure...More
This was an exhiliratingl 4 day river cruise. The ship was elegant with lovely cabins and lots of room on the deck to enjoy the magical countryside. The food was excellent and the staff were superb.Four days was sufficient time to experience life on the...More
The service on the Pandaw ship was good, the crew staff were friendly and the room was suitable. However, the cruise itinerary along Mekong River was much less than expected. Low water level required some rescheduling/canceling of a few tour sites. We were not informed...More
Cruise ship, food and crew/staff was great but there was not that much to see for a 7 day cruise and could have done it all in 3-4 days! Pandaw should NOT have advertised for pink dolphins for this cruise since chances were slim to...More
We cruised on the RV Laos Pandaw downstream at low river level.
The scenery and experience of the fast flowing Upper Mekong was absorbing, requiring skilful navigation by our very capable captain, a most remarkable man, who also undertook to deliver our...More

Yep absolutely. There are specific dates which are family friendly. Be aware there are no TVs and little internet coverage, so they’ll need to take some books etc. It’s not like an ocean cruise on a cruise ship - this is... More
Yep absolutely. There are specific dates which are family friendly. Be aware there are no TVs and little internet coverage, so they’ll need to take some books etc. It’s not like an ocean cruise on a cruise ship - this is very much about the culture, history, exploring the country side etc. But there were 9 kids on our cruise aged 7 - 17 and they all spent the time between onshore excursions in a big group playing pool, board games etc. The crew were also fabulous with kids. Our kids are begging to go again!
I really don't think that it matters which way your cruise since you will still see the same sights on the cruise. I think you just have to decide on how the rest of your itinerary will fit into the ending countries and... More
I really don't think that it matters which way your cruise since you will still see the same sights on the cruise. I think you just have to decide on how the rest of your itinerary will fit into the ending countries and what you want to see from there.
