Pandaw has added a new 10-night Halong Bay and the Red River sailing. The itinerary will commence in July 2015 offering guests the chance to explore the spectacular limestone islands in Halong Bay, before travelling to the remote upper Red River. Pandaw is the first river expedition operator to do so.
Guests will visit floating villages, a floating school and limestone caves in Halong Bay before entering the Kinh Thay River, mooring at Yen Duc village which is surrounded by mountains. On the Duong River, the Angkor Pandaw (above) will visit local villages known for their 11th century folk painting and traditional ceramic production.
Pandaw guests will enjoy the yacht-like feel of the 16-suite Angkor Pandaw as well as five-star luxury service and a crew-to-passenger ratio of 2:1. All excursions are included. Book before 31 October 2014 for a 10 per cent saving.
