Sailing comfortably and splendidly on board the regal RV Paukan 2007, indulge in a truly idyllic river voyage unsurpassed in quality and charm. Newly completed and beautifully crafted, the RV Paukan 2007 is the latest addition to the Ayravata Cruises fleet. The younger but bigger sister ship to RV Pandaw 1947,the Paukan is an exquisite floating boutique hotel that is built in similar style as the old steamers that used to ply the Burmese rivers.

Cruises run downstream from Mandalay to Bagan or upstream from Bagan to Mandalay. Time is spent on board relaxing on the sundeck and observing the river panoramas as well as ashore to explore ancient temples or visit the languid villages by the river.
