There can be no tapestry of river life as fascinating and varied as the River Mekong. Indeed there can be no more striking a cultural contrast as that between the bustling Vietnam delta and the tranquility of Cambodia. We pass from the vibrant French colonial port of Saigon,
now called Ho Chi Minh City, through the vast delta so rich in human life and endeavour, to travel along the main channel into the rich countryside of Cambodia.
A shipping link between Ho Chi Minh and Angkor is immensely practical for the traveller. It makes it possible to connect three important
destinations on one trip with easy plane connections at either end: Saigon the exotic Frenchified former capital of South Vietnam, Phnom
Penh, the quaint Cambodian capital, and the stupendous World Heritage monuments at Angkor. You need no longer check in and out of hotels
and endure bumpy roads to visit these magnificent places. The RV Mekong Pandaw sails every Saturday from June to April. Per person price for main deck cabin sharing are from US$1,415 in low season and from US$2,205 in high season. Cabins:
The Pandaw stateroom is the most celebrated feature of our ships. Finished in brass and teak, the main and upper deck rooms are very spacious at 168 square feet (15.6 sqm).
Much loved by all our passengers we have ensured that with each ship we build the stateroom remains the same. Our cabins do not have mini-bars, satellite TV’s, internet or phones. There is a 24 honesty bar on the sundeck. Pandaw passengers usually want to escape from the tiresome features found in international business hotels.
Many passengers describe life on board a Pandaw more like being a guest on a private motor yacht than a cruise ship. Where we go and what we see is intrepid in extreme. What you come back to is a floating base of discreet comfort, caring service and all the good things one looks for in life.
