Pandaw Cruises orders extra river cruiser

River cruise company Pandaw will take on a third ship for its Laos fleet on the Mekong River in September 2019, its 17th vessel in operation.

The double-decker vessel will be named Sabei Pandaw, will be 45 metres long, and was designed to meet the navigational challenges of shooting the rapids in Lao’s gorges. It will also feature a shallow draught to enable year round passage across Yunnan into China.

Sabei Pandaw will have just twelve staterooms and an open plan saloon with indoor or outdoor dining.

She will be deployed between Vientiane, the Laos capital, to Jinghong in China, a trip that also traverses Thailand and Myanmar.
