Ex­plore river maze

Life & Style Weekend - - TRAVEL -

PANDAW has launched a new ex­pe­di­tion, sail­ing into the heart of the vi­brant and var­ied land­scape of the Ir­rawaddy Delta, ex­plor­ing its maze of trib­u­taries that re­main un­touched by tourism.

Set sail from Ran­goon and weave through the com­plex labyrinth of wa­ter­ways only nav­i­gated by the most ex­pe­ri­enced pi­lots on this fas­ci­nat­ing seven-night itin­er­ary.

Savour the con­trasts of in­dige­nous vil­lage life, mar­kets, an­cient trad­ing ports, tem­ples, churches and mosques, as well as a plethora of birdlife.

Then there is the pos­si­bil­ity of see­ing salt­wa­ter croc­o­diles. Pre and post tours are of­fered in com­bi­na­tion with the Ir­rawaddy Delta itin­er­ary.

Add an overnight stay in the Sule Shangri-La Ho­tel in Ran­goon and en­joy a guide-led ex­cur­sion to the nearby Sh­we­gadon Pagoda.

More ad­ven­ture? Con­sider the three-night post tour of the An­cient Arakan in the Bay of Ben­gal.

Depar­tures from March 10, 2018 for seven nights from $2117 per per­son shar­ing a twin cabin.
