Pandaw Mekong Cruises: The RV Mekong Pandaw, RV Tonlé Pandaw and the RV Orient Pandaw are replicas of colonial era river steamers with ultra shallow hulls, allowing access to remote locations and previously unexplored areas. The boats make the journey from Saigon to Siem Reap (and visa versa) and are constructed in a traditional 1920s style, with spacious air-conditioned cabins, finished in teak and brass. There is a dining room offering a choice of local and Western cuisine using locally sourced ingredients where possible, there is also a cocktail bar and sun deck. All shore excursions are organised by Pandaw Cruises and are accompanied by English-speaking guides.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
