Itinerary

Day 1 Yangon

Touch down in Burma and start exploring. Bring your sunnies when you visit the Buddhist temple of Shwedagon Paya because all that gold can be blinding. Stop in at the National Museum for a quick history lesson and see the elaborate, and sometimes crazy, grandeur the old kings of the nation indulged in.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

Day 2 Kawthoung

It’s adventure time. Jump on a plane to Kawthoung. Settle in with a decent meal and a Mandalay beer before exploring the near by Pyi Taw Aye Paya Temple.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

Day 3 Myauk Ni Island

Time to set sail for the first island on the Myeik Archipelago tour. The 800 islands are still yet to be thoroughly explored. Head to a prime dive zone for a spot of snorkelling, or stretch out on one of the untouched, white sand beaches.
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1

Day 4 Palu Bada

Pull up anchor and head north to Palu Bada for some more great snorkelling and lazy sailing. The pristine coral reef and marine life aren’t used to many visitors, so be prepared to be blinded by an array of colours and a flurry of large schools of fish. Also, keep an eye out for slippery eels, vibrant octopus and even the occasional whale shark.
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1

Day 5 Bo Cho Island

Lose the sea legs and jump into village life on the largest island in the southern archipelago. This is a great opportunity to learn about the Moken, or ‘sea gypsies’, a nomadic tribe who live their lives roaming the sea. Their handcrafted wooden boats are used not only to fish, but also as the kitchen, bedroom and dining area.
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1

Day 6 Swinton Island

After a morning sailing south, spot hawksbill turtles among plentiful marine life, chill out on land, or just wait to photograph the perfect archipelago sunset. If the weather is fine, build a campfire to hang out by over dinner (just make sure someone stocked up on marshmallows back in Kawthoung.)
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1

Day 7 Kho Yinn Khwa Island

Let someone else do the cooking after a long day of snorkelling, jungle hiking and lazing on Kho Yinn Khwa’s beach. Try some local Burmese cuisine like mohinga (noodle soup), gyin thohk (ginger salad) and fresh island fruits.
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1

Day 8 Thay Yae Island

Anchor one last time, jump in the turquoise waters of a deserted beach and go for a kayak or snorkel around this pristine water world. The final day in a secluded paradise will draw to a close with a spectacular sunset and a relaxing dinner on board.
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1

Day 9 Yangon

Wake early to watch the sun rise over the Andaman Sea. Farewell your sea-weathered shipmates at Kawthoung immigration pier before heading to the airport to catch a flight back to Yangon.
