Yangon - Ngwe Saung- Yangon

Ngwe Saung Beach

A new destination on Myanmar's tourism map, Ngwe Saung (Silver Beach) offers its visitors unspoiled beaches and tranquility on the coast of the Indian Ocean. A few entrepreneurs have begun developing accommodation for local and foreign visitors. The destination is still in its early stages of this development process. Ngwe Saung can be reached by car from the capital Yangon in approximately seven hours. The journey takes travelers on a partly bumpy and pot-holed road across the alluvial Ayeyarwaddy Delta region. As an alternative to road travel, it is now possible to travel from Yangon to the Pathein River by boat, a journey of approximately 16 hours through picturesque scenery, passing homesteads and typical villages dotted along the riverbanks. Countless larger and smaller tributaries interconnect the vast and fertile Ayeyarwaddy Delta; it is an ideal area for rice cultivation. Ngwe Saung Beach, as the latest emerging beach destination in Myanmar, is a jewel for independent travelers seeking nothing more but quietude, seashore and the ocean.

The river vessel "RV Bha Nyar Latt", or the "Delta Queen", is an ideal and reliable means of transport to ply the waterways of the Ayeyarwaddy Delta region. The 45-meter-long ship was recently refurbished with the focus on transporting leisure travelers. There are 12 standard twin cabins with air-conditioning on the upper deck. Washrooms are detached.
