The Dynamic Beach Life
The unexplored southern shoreline of Myanmar draws in a couple of guests, however, for the individuals who do wander down here, there is much to investigate. Dawei specifically draws our consideration and is a 2-hour flight south of Yangon. While it is known in Myanmar for its dynamite shorelines, it is far less settled then the more famous goals of Ngapali Beach and Nyaung Shwe, yet as we would see it, it’s significantly more lovely.
The drawback for visiting Dawei is there are no 4-star shoreline resorts here yet, yet for those searching for an experience out of the way, it’s a gold mine. Here you will discover staggering immaculate shorelines with brilliant sand, lovely view along the drift and amicable faces welcoming you wherever you go. It may require a significant stretch of time to arrive, yet kid is it justified, despite all the trouble.
At one point in history, Myanmar was the richest and most powerful country in Southeast Asia, and Dawei was a port-of-call for traders and fishermen, though a largely undeveloped one.
Today, it’s more of a “sleepy” or “laidback” coastal town. With its traditional houses and colonial-style stucco buildings, lovely beaches, polite people, and absence of traffic jams, it is a lovely destination to experience a bit of calm while in Myanmar.

Float down the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River in an old steamer or extravagance cruiser. Stake out a cut of shoreline on the delighted Bay of Bengal. Trek through pine backwoods to minority towns scattered over the Shan Hills without bumping with scores of individual voyagers.
