Tips for first-time visitors to Myanmar
Do you plan to come to Myanmar during the tourist seasons? Booking a mooring at Ngapali Strand - you have to do it in advanced, but it's definitely worthwhile. "It' s the most pretty beach,[with] crystalline waters, clear sands, [and] palms blowing on its sides," Edwin states. "It' s what makes it stand out, the shortage of things like 7 events, Karaoke clubs, gift stores, etc.," says Edwin.
"All Ngapali has are low level establishments right on the shore. It' about the sand and the countryside, great folks, good meals, without all the touristy circuses you have on other beaches!" Ngapali Beach's top class properties and resort facilities are mainly three to five star designer boutiques.
"It' certainly not a hippy place, it's more high-end," Edwin says, "but it's about the boom for the money....MORE that Ngapali Beaches in Peak provides. For example, a side-by-side with Phuket in Thailand clarifies his point of view. "When you' re looking for a beachfront resort - which I always think is perfect when you're just out to the ocean - there aren't many places on Phuket where you have a beachfront hotel," Edwin states.
"Ngapali Beach's Butique Resort rates are comparable to those on Phuket, but Myanmar has a good price-performance ratio." Anticipate a lot of room rivalry - "it is hard to find a room in high seasons - March, April May is perfect for trips to the beach," Edwin states. "but in Phuket or Luang Prabang that's not only Myanmar typical!"
