Trip Ideas

Myanmar By Sea

Off the coast of Myanmar lies the next undiscovered region of Southeast Asia: the Mergui Archipelago, where 800 mountain islands jut out from the sea like paintings from the Tang Dynasty. Populated by sea gypsies and animal life, pristine beaches and Moken tribes, it’s as if Kipling’s Jungle Book were trapped in time.

  • Sail in some of the most undiscovered waters in Southeast Asia with your own crew and guides.
  • Meet villagers from the Moken Tribe, a sea going people who have lived in these waters for hundreds of years.
  • Swim on your own private beaches and toast the sunset in these islands of lost time.

Myanmar Adventure

One of the last of the untouched in Southeast Asia, Myanmar conjures images of thick jungles, ancient cities, and golden temples stretching as far as the horizon allows. Dine with princesses, hike with hill-tribe kings, boat with the spirit of the old British Empire and realize this is no trip; it’s an adventure.

  • Have tea with Chieftains and Kings in the Shan state.
  • Watch the sunrise over the ancient city of Bagan from your private hot air balloon.
  • Explore the Himalaya region in far north Myanmar, by foot, raft, or bike.
  • Charter a private sail boat in the Mergui Archipelago.
