My Journey to Myanmar Pt. 5
Towards the end of my trip in Myanmar I headed south towards Yangon. I had a few days left on my visa and didn’t have anything booked to leave the country which kind of gave me the freedom to explore a little before finally exiting.
Usually when a person thinks of Myanmar (if they ever do) they don’t think about beaches. However, to my surprise, they have a quiet and beautiful beach nestled on the Western coast. About a 4 hour bus ride from Yangon, Ngwe Saung Beach isn’t as beautiful as some of the beaches in neighboring Thailand but for what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in seclusion.
It definitely isn’t bustling with tourist yet which makes for a quiet and relaxing authentic beach experience. They are building brand new resorts such as the one seen in the photo but they are currently almost completely vacant. Go and take advantage of this tranquil beach before it becomes another stomping ground for the mass of tourist.
