Myanmar, also known as Burma, is the northern end of the Malay Peninsula and borders Thailand to the south, China, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Laos to the east. The Republic of Myanmar achieved sovereignty in 1948 after the occupation by the Brits and the Japanese. Today, the Republic of Myanmar is a democratically and stably built nation, although there are still conflicts in some areas.
Before you plan your journey, find out about your destination's requirements. Myanmar's western shore is bordered by the Andaman Sea and contains the only diving spots in the state. Whilst other areas will certainly be explored soon, the only diving spots are in the Mergui Archipelago and just northwest.
Use of a diving safari is the only way to go diving in this area. A few live-aboard safaris will divide their trip between Thailand and Myanmar or just a small part of the island. We recommend a minimum 10-day tour to some of Myanmar's best sights.
Due to the seclusion of the Mergui Archipelago you can count on not overcrowded divesites during the whole scuba fishing time. It can be said with certainty that most Myanmar divers do not go underwater. Scuba may be the reasons you come to Myanmar, but a full days of discovering unexplored places full of smilling and helping local people will be a precious souvenir for years to come.
The Yangon Airport is the most important airport for all myanmar-operations. To reach the Mergui Archipelago from Yangon you will need either a rarely operated domestic airfare or a two to three day coache. In order to resolve this issue, most liveaboard safaris depart from Ranong, Thailand with Myanmar as their destination.
Buses and cabs run frequently from most of Thailand's touristic places to Ranong. B, A, C, D, F, Note - Travelling to any holiday location may be affected by safety, immigration and departure regulations, medical condition, community law and cultural issues, disaster and weather patterns.
Whatever your final destinations, you should consult your regional tourist information committee or your division when you plan your journey and just before your departure.
