Rare dolphin the target for passengers on Pandaw cruise to the Mekong


Pandaw has announced two special 10-night departures – The Mekong Unexplored - on 8 and 18 July 2015.

Guests on board the Mekong Pandaw will be hoping to spot the rare Irrawaddy dolphin with its distinctive bulging forehead and short beak in the WWF protected area of Kratie. In the afternoon, board the small Pandaw Explorer boat and visit the remote Koh Trong Island for a chance to see Mekong mud turtles as well as visiting a remote floating village. Other additions to the Mekong Unexplored itinerary include an excursion to the Chhlong, known for its French colonial buildings.

The 10-night sailing also offers excursions to the local markets in Vinh Long, a day exploring the vibrant city of Phnom Penh and a visit to the pagodas at Preak Bong Kong and Angkor Ban.

Cruise-only from £1,550 per person based on two people sharing a main deck stateroom, fully inclusive of all excursions, crew gratuities, meals and non-premium drinks. Transfers between ports of embarkation and the international airport at the start and end of the voyage. All excursions and local soft drinks, beer and spirits are included in this unique itinerary.
