Luxury river expedition company Pandaw to explore exciting new territories in the ancient Arakan region of Burma

Luxury river expedition company, Pandaw, is delighted to announce that they will become the first and only operators to explore the rivers of the fascinating Arakan region in Western Burma.  A series of seven night expeditions will operate weekly from 2 October 2015 and will take intrepid guests in to the heart of one of the most interesting areas of Burma on the RV Katha Pandaw, a replica of the original 19th Century Irrawaddy Flotilla Company boats.
The Ancient Arakan expedition will visit many fascinating sights best accessed by river, including Mrauk U, a temple city that rivals Pagan, Angkor or Borobadur in significance as a centre of Buddhist culture.  It will also explore other parts of the Arakan river system on the Kaladan River; including the old colonial port city of Akyab, now called Sittwe, and the incredible Tattoo Villages of the Le Myo River deep inside the Arakan interior.
Guests looking for an extended exploration of Burma can combine this seven night expedition, departing weekly on a Friday, with other weekly Pandaw departures on the Chindwin (Saturdays), Bhamo (Sundays) and the Salween (Mondays).
