It is one the South East Asia’s largest and most diverse countries and stretches from the sparkling islands of the Andaman Sea in the South right up into the Eastern Himalayan mountain range.
Myanmar is a multiracial country made up of 135 national races, where the main national races are the Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Bamar, Mon, Rakhine and Shan.
Myanmar is often considered to be a unique yacht charter destination that has hardly been touched by humans. It is a land of breathtaking beauty and offers a thriving natural paradise with thick rainforest, rocky headlands, beautiful sandy beaches, mangrove swamps, and extensive coral reefs and houses a flourishing plethora of rare creatures.
During a yacht charter cruise along the coasts of Myanmar, you can have a break at Yangon, which is the most famous destination for shopping. The city boosts a variety of precious stones and jewelries such as jades, sapphire or rubies at reasonable prices.
Apart from Yangon, you will also find various nightlife activities in Mandalay. There are a few discos and dance clubs, and most of the nightclubs come with live music.
A yacht charter cruise to Myanmar is quite impossible without including the Mergui archipelago in your sailing route. The yacht cruising options in this unique idyllic area are limitless. The Mergui archipelago has over 800 jungle covered islands and is one of the most scenic places in the world to sail a yacht.
Yacht charterers will have the opportunity to adventure-sail through a vast cruising area, approximately 10,000 square miles, of virtually unexplored island coastlines, creeks and estuaries teeming with wildlife and rarely visited by travelers.
The Mergui archipelago stretches from the North Victoria Harbor at about 200 miles and offers unlimited cruising possibilities among the hundreds of islands and cays.
You have the opportunity to discover these Virgin Islands which are dotted with pristine white beaches fringed by coral reef and backed by hills covered in lush jungle. You can wander along the deserted golden beaches or swim and snorkel in clear waters with fabulous and colorful corals
