There is no better way to discover Myanmar’s Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers than a sail onboard one of Ayravata Cruises’ deluxe boats.
Rv Pandaw 1947 was built on the Clyde in Scotland in 1947 in the style of the pre-war steamers of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. Arriving in what was then known as Burma in 1950 the Pandaw was put into service in 1951 to carry both cargo and passengers along the Irrawaddy River. In the 1998 she was converted into a 16 cabin luxurious river cruiser by the revived Irrawaddy Flotilla Company and following a second major refitting in 2003 has been operated by Ayravata Cruises.
RV Paukan is the newest addition to the Ayravata Cruise. The lovely Paukan is a boutique hotel on the river, beautifully furnished with a unique combination of modern and traditional motifs. The timber-walled cabins are furnished with colonial style cupboards, dresser and doors while the ceiling is traditional Myanmar.
