 A real adventure experienceWe began in Burma. The uniquePandawriver expedition concept evolved here from the vestiges of the colonial Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. Our ships were built here and in Burma we learn tomaster river navigation at its worst. These lessons were applied to the other rivers of Asia.Burma, after 1987 renamed by the regime Myanmar, is the largest mainland South-East Asiancountry and with the greatest variety of scenery from Himalayan peaks to tropical beaches. Wehave yet to meet a visitor to Burma who does not feel that this is the most beautiful, friendly andculturally interesting Asian country ever visited.Most of the population live in three great river valleys encircled by impenetrable horseshoes of mountains. River life dominates the country and still to this day forms the main system of transportation, irrigation and from its rich fishing grounds the principal protein source for themajority of the population.In the great Chindwin, Irrawaddy and Salween valleys two millennial of Buddhist art, architectureand archaeology survive, including of course the 3000 standing monuments at Pagan. There isno other Asian country with so vast and varied a range of cultural sites. Almost everywhere thereare temples and monasteries, festivals and ceremonies. The Burmese are a deeply pious peopleand Buddhist activities dominate every aspect of life.The Burmese are a very warm and friendly people who since Independence in 1947 havesuffered terrible impoverishment and deprivation. We do our best to support the local domesticeconomy and make sure our suppliers and contractors are small local businesses. We are verycareful to make sure our clients’ money falls into the right hands. Sanctions and the politicallycorrect refusal of most NGOs and international charities to work in the country has served toexacerbate deprivation and entrench the regime further.Our Pandaw passengers believe that by visiting Burma we are doing something to help as hasbeen proved by the many schools our passengers have built, not to mention the outstandingcontribution made by our passengers after Cyclone Nargis struck in 2008. Most of the Burmeseour passengers encounter tend to agree with this assumption. Thesecruisesare the most
