Deluxe Burma (Myanmar): Archipelago of Myeik for sailors
As has been said over the past five years, Burma (Myanmar) is at a turning point after opening its gates to intruders. After avoiding becoming entangled in a touristic twister, one has the feeling that Burma in the countryside (Myanmar) can only be for the boldest people. Finally, the big town of Yangon, the Bagan pagodas and the stylized towns of Inle Lake are great attractions for a holiday, but still relatively new.
Burma is more than twice the big of Vietnam - and larger than Thailand and Nepal put together - with bustling towns, jungles, coastlines and huge seas that are feeling green. When you want to discover unspoilt areas comfortably, there is a savage (and wild) underestimated and little researched delicacy.
Your personal boat is over in the eastern and dark blues of the Andamanensee. The Myeik (Mergui) archipelago has more than 800 islets, from minute flower heads with cliffy promontories to wooded areas and sandbanks that extend into the ocean. The exploration of these isles was not always so glamorous - some were taken over by the UK' s Colonies until the 1940s.
Remains of their reign are an abandoned punishment settlement on Ross Island, today a touristic destination with a captivating but sometimes cruel histor. There are other small archipelagos with very much English reputations, including Great Swinton (Kyun Pila), Lord Loughborough (Jarr Lan) and Hastings (Za Det Nge Island). Perhaps today you have the feeling that you have the island to yourself; many are completely desert, but there are 2,000 Moken or gypsy seals living between them (read more about them here).
Today the archipelago is perfect for insular hoping - so to speak; all-inclusive hotels and water-side inaccessibility. While the best of both may seem banal, the possibility of spending a few nights back in the wild before climbing aboard a boat fitted with everything you can consume, enjoy and relax in comfort is certainly the defining feature.
Shall I leave out Burma's touristic hot spots? On the Myeik archipelago every single working days - is it just a sunbath? Descend from your stylish swimming resort to bathe in calm water and snorkell to see an unbelievable underground universe. Whilst wildlife seems to blossom, as if there is no such thing as beyond, these fine water bodies are threatened by dynamicfish.
Every single DAILY the jump from your boat is a new adventur. Canoe through mangroves with lush verdant water. Watch bird watching and see long-tail fishermen gliding over calm water - a unique insight into the world. This journey is more than just a sunbath.
