Cruising along the rivers of Myanmar
 
RV Pandaw was built in Scotland on the Clyde by the famous ships builder Yarrow & Co on 1947 with the same design of the pre-war Quarter Wheeler steamers of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. In the 1998, the vessel was converted into a tourist pleasure luxurious river cruise vessel in the Myanma Shipyard (Sinmalike) by the revived Irrawaddy Flotilla Company Ltd. and during their management docking was performed annually at the Dalla Dockyard.

In the second half of the 2003, Ayravata Cruises signed the charter agreement with Inland Water Transport and the Pandaw underwent to major renovations. Now the two ships are running under Ayravata Cruises: RV Pandaw 1947 (An original Colonial Steamer) and RV Paukan 2007 (New Charming Cruising Boutique Hotel). It offers river cruises to explore the Royal capitals around Mandalay and experience the life of the great Irrawaddy River beyond Royal Mandalay and Ancient Bagan.
