RV Paukan(2007)

A CHARMING CRUISING BOUTIQUE HOTEL

RV Paukan 2007

Paukan is the ancient name of Bagan, the old city of two thousand temples on the bank of the Ayeyarwaddy River. This ancient capital, seat of the First Myanmar Empire, is a treasure to the people of Myanmar. Throughout the century of their existence, the temples remain a place of living worship, maintained by donations from royalty and the public.


RV Paukan was built in 2007 at the Myanmar Shipyards in Yangon for Ayravata Cruises. The Yangon River and its dockyards were commented upon over two hundred years ago as “the most favourable river in the world for naval architecture” by the first British envoy to Myanmar Captain Michael Symes of His Britannic Majesty’s 7th Regiment who arrived in Yangon in February of 1795.

RV Paukan(2012)

A SMALL CRUISING BOUTIQUE HOTEL

The latest member of the Paukan Cruises family under the management of the Ayravata Cruise Company is the RV Paukan 2012 which was launched in September of 2012. She was ‘born’ in the well-known Ahlone Ship Yards on the banks of the Yangon River, where men with decades-long experience started work on her in 2011. Captain Michael Symes of His Britannic Majesty’s 7th Regiment who saw the shipyards in 1795 noted the Yangon River as “the most favourable river in the world for naval architecture”. The 200 years-old tradition of excellent craftsmanship still exists in this workplace and a sister vessel, the RV Paukan, was also ‘born’ here in 2007. RV Paukan 2012 is slightly smaller than this older sister and is in the same genre of a floating boutique hotel of timeless elegance.


Paukan 2012 is a gem of a vessel, a compact but elegant vessel made of teak with a hull of marine steel. The walls and floors are of timber with each plank carefully chosen to showoff the beautiful grain. The décor is modern chic, with a touch of Myanmar culture through a few traditional motifs, wooden figures, fabrics and paintings.


There are 18 cabins, twin and double, with attached bathrooms for a total of 34 passengers. .
