You cannot help checking lists such as the “top 10 beaches in the world” and no photoshopped pictures convince you so much? You dream about a white sand paradise but do not want to share it with hordes of tourists? Well, we know that one place where your dreams come true and it is called Ngapali. Myanmar’s unspoiled beaches will just blow your mind, as it may be one of the very few places like this remaining on earth.
“Luxury, calm and voluptuousness”
This could not describe Ngapali better. Indeed, time has come for some relaxation. You deserve some rest from the country’s most popular sites you visited on your journey around lovely Myanmar. Not only the place is about relaxing, enjoying the sun and the stunning landscapes but you also find plenty of activities once you get bored of these idyllic white sand beaches and crystal waters.
Myanmar paradise beaches
For now, you indulge in a relaxing day by the beach. Ngapali beach is beautiful, the palm tree lined sandy shores makes your day and you really enjoy that mass tourism had not arrived to such a paradise on earth. This is a quiet place where you definitely have the quality time you were looking for. There is various options for yummy beachfront dining and prices are not even high. For some hours, you just live on seafood, scuba diving and this feels so good! Kids and adults are ready for their pony ride on the seashore and life could not be better.
The hidden world under the sea
You discover a wonderful marine life by snorkeling or diving in such breathtaking crystal waters. Here you are in the Bay of Bengal where the fauna and flora are so unique. Then, you decide to hire a bicycle to go around the small fishermen villages situated in Ngapali’s surroundings. You wander around all the villages you find on your way. Life in here is so colorful and relaxing. You take your time to learn more about the local people, why they are wearing this Thanaka paste on their cheeks or how they live out of all this local comfort.
Stepping into local culture in Maung Shwe Lay village
You decide to spend a day in a typical beachside village, meeting with the friendly local residents of the Maung Shwe Lay Village that you reach within one hour by boat. The place is so quiet that Yangon’s or Mandalay’s hustle and bustle just feel like an old memory now. You can have a ride on an ox cart through the village and stop to visit the school or the monastery. You always have friendly encounters with Myanmar people that are known to be among the friendliest in the world. The country itself is very safe and its people really help making a big difference. Comparing to other countries in Southeast Asia that are so familiar with receiving thousands of tourists, here you are in a place that recently opened to tourism and where so many places have been kept untouched.
Flying above beautiful Myanmar
On your last day, you wake up early and jump in a hot-air balloon. The fly offers such a scenic view on one of the most enchanting place. After 45-60 minutes watching the sun rising over the crystal waters, you descend back to the ground for a light and refreshing breakfast before heading to other adventures. Life has never been so sweet that in this unforgettable country.
