Pandaw River Cruises announced that from January 2023 the company would activate a 3rd boat - RV Sabaidee Pandaw, on their 10-night Laos expedition from Vientiane (Laos) to Chiang Saen (Thailand).

Anticipating a post-COVID slow down the company had been deliberately cautious and currently operates only two riverboats - Champa Pandaw and Laos Pandaw on this route. However, these were more or less full up now so Pandaw had decided to prepare the 14-cabin Sabaidee for a relaunch.

“The 10 night Laos Mekong offers probably the most exciting river expedition anywhere with its fast waters cutting through rocky gorges, towering mountains and rich forests. There is so much human interest as well with stops in tribal villages to a couple of days amongst the Buddhist shrines of Luang Prabang”.

Fares for the 10-night The Laos Mekong start from US$3924 (members from US$3488).

Passengers can enjoy a 3-country expedition as they traverse Laos to reach Thailand and Burma at the Golden Triangle. The trip will stop for 2 nights at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang with its wood-carved monasteries and on deep into the mountains, through gorges on the high-powered little Pandaw.
