On any Pandaw river expedition daily briefings are hosted by your purser and guide which provide a forum to discuss the day's events and the plans for the day ahead.
Whilst the peace and tranquility of their passengers is their priority and many passengers prefer to read, write or engage in painting or photography they do offer a number of unobtrusive activities that have become a traditional part of any Pandaw river expedition.
During the expedition there will be at least one cultural performance on board whether the Royal Khmer Ballet in Cambodia, the Marionette Theater in Burma or Iban tribal dances in Borneo. On longer cruises there wll be at least two performances per cruise.
They offer a range on on board activities including: cooking demonstrations, fruit carving, napkin arrangement, exploring local markets with our chefs, talks from our on board guides, film presentations, with documentaries on local history and culture as well as movies, tours of the working ship and many other activities.
Themed movie nights are popular - L'Indochine in Vietnam, the Killing Fields in Cambodia and The Lady in Burma are a number of old favourites.
There are a number of social events during an expedition whcih will include a welcome dinner, cocktail parties on deck, a farewell gala dinner and dinners themed with local menus and costume. In the Burma dry season they often tie up on a sandbank and have a barbeque beach party on the sands, usually around a bonfire in winter.
