Exploring Myanmar’s unspoilED shores: Village in Ngapali 

After around 1 hour, the shores of Maung Shwe Lay come into view. Located on a crescent-shaped bay, the village is home to a few dozen families who make a living from fishing and other agrarian activities. Although their life is quite simple compared to the Western world, they are proud of their village and happy to welcome guests.

In fact, today’s excursion was set up by the Muang Shwe Lay community. They wanted to share the traditions of village life with foreign visitors, raise funds for community activities, and to help create jobs for the residents.
