Burma (Myanmar)

Burma (Myanmar)

Myanmar, the sleeping beauty of Asia, offers a glimpse of what Asia was some 50 years ago; a rare mix of harmonious charm and sensual delights. It is a land of flamboyant Buddhism, peopled by quiet, dignified folk who are amazingly kind and welcoming. A former British colony once named Burma, Myanmar, the largest country in Southeast Asia, is very generous to its visitors, offering a wide range of beautiful scenery and archeological wonders, golden-robed monks and innumerable temples, and a lifestyle so lively it is sure to keep you busy.

The Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar is a fascinating place to explore by yacht charter. It is at the far southern of the country, within cruising distance of Phuket, Thailand, and has only been open to tourism since 1997. The Moken people who live here continue to carry on a traditional way of life, building their boats, fishing for food and teaching their children to paddle and swim before they are barely old enough to run. Scuba enthusiasts were the first to discover the area when it opened to visitors, and they reported amazing underwater life thanks to the lack of tourism for so many years. The handful of charter yachts that have ventured recently to the Mergui archipelago are finding similar beauty—as well as people who are eager to make friends with those from other cultures. It’s not uncommon to have a few Moken children wander up to you at the beach, curious about how your charter yacht’s VHF radios or barbecue grill work. If your schedule allows, your itinerary in Myanmar can also include a stop at Yangon, the nation’s largest city. Here, you will find stunning religious architecture alongside modern-day banks where some pilgrims are fascinated to see how ATMs work—because they’ve never before seen them.
