Pandaw Cruise

Updated: 04/13/2018 4:21:02 PM Viewed: 691

Type: Cruise & Sailing Tours | Duration: Tours 5 - 9 Days | Destination: Ho Chi Minh

Overview

We now have twelve beautifully crafted ships that we built ourselves. Each ship, hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen, is in itself an object of great beauty. The secret of our success is that on our cruise ships, whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that predominate.
