The ‘RV Champa Pandaw’, which has 14 teak-finished staterooms, was specially built to withstand the strong currents and challenging navigational conditions of the Upper Mekong and deliver Southeast Asia’s first “four country” river expedition.

Running from October to April, Pandaw’s 14-night “The Mekong: from Laos to China” cruise operates upstream and downstream between the Lao capital Vientiane and Jinghong in China, via moorings in Thailand and Burma.

‘RV Champa Pandaw’ is the latest addition to Pandaw’s fleet.
