A relatively new destination on Myanmar’s tourism map, Ngwe Saung Beach offers its visitors unspoiled beaches and tranquility on the edge of the Bay of Bengal. Hoteliers at the beach recently marked the 10th anniversary of its establishment as a tourism destination and from humble beginnings Ngwe Saung boasts more than a dozen top-class hotels. The beach can be reached by car from the capital Yangon in approximately five hours and the journey takes travelers across the wide alluvial Ayeyarwaddy delta region.
A stop can be included in Pathein, a busy trading town on the banks of the Pathein River. As an alternative to road travel, it is possible to travel from Yangon to Pathein by boat, which will see you float through picturesque scenery, passing by the many houses and villages that dot the river banks. The vast and fertile Ayeyarwaddy Delta is connected to countless larger and smaller river tributaries; it’s an ideal area for rice cultivation. Ngwe Saung Beach is a jewel for independent travelers seeking nothing more but sand, sea and tranquility.
