This journey with Pandaw cruise from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh enables you to discover the secret of Mekong River – one of the world’s great rivers where sustaining civilizations through the centuries.
Furthermore, you will have chance to explore many facinating places of Vietnam and Cambodia, unveil mysterious Angkor Wat, visit floating village in Can Tho and get immerged into the vibrant life of Saigonese.

Cruise: Sixteen beautifully crafted Pandaw ships were hand-finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen. All Pandaws have ultra-shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas, which are unreachable by other passenger-carrying vessels, let alone overland. The success off the Padaw is that, whilst luxury and comfort are ever-present, on ships it is the colonial-era character and friendly atmosphere that predominate.
