Review of RV Angkor Pandaw

RV Angkor Pandaw ship cruises on Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia departing from Bangkok, Hanoi and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). The ship was built in Saigon and launched in 2012. It was once operated by Avalon Waterways under the name "Avalon Angkor", but in 2015 was replaced with Avalon Siem Reap.

The Angkor Pandaw ship is the industry's first Mekong River boat sailing full route from Saigon (Vietnam) to Siem Reap (Cambodia), and the reverse. This luxurious riverboat was designed specifically to go where other boats are unable to, without sacrificing any comforts and amenities its passengers expect from the premium Pandaw River Cruises company.
