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