We are delighted to have chartered the charming RV Paukan for this exploration of Myanmar. Built in 2007, the RV Paukan is designed to resemble an old fashioned wooden river cruiser but has all the modern amenities and safety features. The vessel is one of the smallest on the river and is beautifully furnished with a unique combination of modern and traditional motifs. She accommodates a maximum of just 55 passengers with a crew of 30 providing a warm and friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Whilst on board you can dine in the elegant restaurant, enjoy a drink in the vessel’s outside bar or simply relax and watch the world go by from the Sun Deck. For those in need of a little pampering, enjoy a visit to the ship’s massage room for a relaxing Burmese-style massage.
