The RV Kindat Pandaw is the sister ship of RV Kalaw Pandaw and both boats are nearly identical. Although built in traditional Pandaw River Cruises style with teak and brass and has an aura of colonial luxury, the ship is still one of the newest and most modern ships sailing along the Irrawaddy River. RV Kindat Pandaw is truly a superb option for those who are looking for an exploration to discover Burma’s rustic people, unique culture, scenic waterways and historic sites.

The RV Kindat Pandaw features an observation deck and a promenade deck offering panoramic views. There are 20 cabins with a maximum capacity of 40 passengers spreading over the 2 decks. Each cabin of RV Kindat Pandaw is equipped with air conditioner and other luxury furniture to offer an almost inclusive experience for customers. There are also other facilities on the vessel of RV Kindat Pandaw including lecture rooms, cozy libraries, mini spa, modern gyms and traditional saloon.

While ashore, tourists will have the opportunity to see the highlights of Burma in Mandalay, Bagan, or Yangon with the direction of friendly and knowledgeable guides who did explore the region in several years and had deep understandings about the local tourism.


All bottled mineral water, soft drinks, tea, coffee, local beer and spirits are available and free during the RV Kindat Pandaw cruise. Daily excursions and all meals in the dining room are also included in the cruise fares. Meals are exotic prepared by experienced chefs in both local and Western style with fabulous states to ensure that travellers will have a great cuisine experience in their Myanmar river cruise. The RV Kindat Pandaw cruise also offers some complimentary luxurious services such as shoe cleaning after excursions, high quality mountain bikes for further independent discovery, local art performances…

1. Alteration of Schedule and Cruise Itinerary

In spite of the fact that we will do our best to assure that the announced itinerary is followed at the strictest possible level, occasionally, we might have to alter or delay the schedules and itineraries in the last minute due to the uncertainty of local weather and river conditions.

2. Change Point of Embarkation and Disembarkation

If the cruise encounters difficulty in embarking and disembarking passengers at the scheduled points, RV Kindat Pandaw will bear no extra cost of transporting to and from the embarking and disembarking place except for the case that the passengers or their agents have purchased a package tour including our land services. Any reason for altering the place of embarkation and disembarkation will not be considered a reason for terminating this contract. 

3. Fuel Surcharge

The fuel costs, which have been calculated basing on the average market price, are included in the announced ticket price. If the fuel price increases by more than 10%, the company will have the right to collect charge for fuel supplement equal to the amount by which the fuel price exceeds the price stated in the contract.

4. Deposit

We will notify all passengers with confirmed booking about the cancellation 30 days in advance. A substitute cruise ship (with parallel itinerary and ship type) or an alternative departure date will be proposed depending on its availability.

RV Kindat Pandaw will bear or compensate any extra or difference in cruise prices. If the passengers do not agree with the alternative ship or departure, we will make full refund of the deposit amounts upon the demand of the passengers.

Wonderful mix: luxury cruise and rural Myanmar

February 2017

Our cruise was on the Upper Irrawaddy. This is our 3rd Pandaw cruise in 2 years. They epitomize the benefits and joys of Myanmar experience. The food is great, the itineraries are creative. We faced a couple of crises (caught on sand bars) and the crew is empowered to find solutions. The staff are friendly to the point of knowing passengers quite intimately which guarantees a personalized service, especially at meal times.

Wow; 100% Service

April 2016

Every detail of this 7 night stay on Kindat Pandaw was first class. Both embarkation and disembarkation were seamless. We did a morning tour of Bagan before embarking and received a phone call from Kindat purser to determine if we needed lunch held for us! The boat is beautifully designed - functional and beautiful to look at. The cabin was well appointed with lots of storage to enable unpacking, bathroom of adequate size - we were a couple sharing. All areas of the boat were incredibly clean all of the time.

Kindat Pandaw, Highlight of a Month Long Tour, A+

October 2018

Cabins (straightened 2x a day) super clean, bright (no windows but lovely large sliding glass door entrance), roomy & comfortable, ditto shower/bath. Bedding clean, comfy, white. Good AC. In addition, food is hands down the BEST food I encountered over my month long trip in Burma. Main Chef, Bakery Chef were at the top of their games - from seafood to salad to vegetables to breads to desserts - A+. In addition to lovely cabins & superb food, the crew, managed by a young man named Bo, is to be highly commended. Reserved, respectful, well trained in hospitality, genuinely caring & kind, Bo set a professional but approachable tone that was followed by others.
