EXPLORE HIDDEN MYANMAR

Myanmar is a land of rivers. Not just the legendary Irrawaddy river, navigable for 1000 miles, or its main tributary the Chindwin river, navigable for 600 miles, but other rivers too.

Here, nearly all movement of people and goods, not to mention invaders, have travelled by river for more than a thousand years. And in British colonial times, the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company launched 1,200 vessels and became the largest fleet of privately owned ships the world has ever seen.

Pandaw Cruises offer explorations of Myanmar’s waterways on ships based on the original Irrawaddy Flotilla Company fleet.

The Pandaw experience is all about exploring remote and often hard-to-navigate rivers and coasts in specially-designed luxury small ships hand-crafted in brass and teak.

If you’ve been inspired by Peter Hosper’s Myanmar recollections, why not consider these fabulous Pandaw explorations?

THE GREAT IRRAWADDY DELTA

The Irrawaddy Delta covers an area of over 1000 square miles with Rangoon, its most famous port and capital of all Burma from 1886 to 2005. Originally a vast inhabited wetland and jungle, much of it was cleared and cultivated by the British who annexed Lower Burma in 1855.

It subsequently became the rice basket of Asia, effectively feeding much of the Indian Raj.
