ABOUT RV PAUKAN 2007
Paukan is the ancient name of Bagan, the old city of two thousand temples on the bank of the Irrawaddy River.
RV Paukan was built in 2007 at the Myanmar Shipyards in Yangon for Ayravata Cruises.
The lovely Paukan is a boutique hotel on the river, beautifully furnished with a unique combination of modern and traditional motifs. The timber-walled cabins are furnished with colonial style cupboards, dresser and doors while the ceiling is traditional Myanmar.
The single or double beds are proper and comfortable ones and not mere bunks, enough room for 55 passengers who will be looked after by a 30-member crew.
For luxury-living, Paukan has suites, deluxe or superior cabins as well as singles for guest or guides. There are two massage rooms on the lower deck offering traditional Myanmar massage designed to give soothing relaxation.
The sun deck has a stage for cultural performances, and a bar and lounge for relaxation and fun. The upper deck has a lecture / movie room with LCD projector and LCD TV screen.

With the drapes pulled aside, there lay in front of your eyes the amazing the view of the river as it changes moods during different times of the day.

The lounge on the upper deck seats 16 and the open deck with a well stocked bar leading out from it seats 15. It is the perfect place to make new friends or to hold a party, if you are already with friends.
In fact, a cruise on the Paukan 2012 is a perfect way to celebrate a special moment in your life, surrounded by friends. The lounge is arranged and decorated tastefully with comfortable chairs, for groups of several people or in a more intimate setting.
