Myanmar Luxury yacht charter guide
Until quite recently, Myanmar was largely off limits to luxury yachts. Today, however, luxury yacht charters are able to experience the country’s wonderful cruising grounds, which are predominantly located along the country’s south-west coast. Home to the Mergui Archipelago, these waters are some of the remotest in the world and, accordingly, a Myanmar luxury yacht vacation is still an extremely unique event not to be missed.
The 800 islands that make up the Mergui Archipelago are home to some of the most beautiful untouched landscapes in the world, and are alive with an incredible array of flora and fauna.
Luxury Yacht Charters Itineraries in Myanmar
Most Myanmar yachting charters begin at the mainland port of Kawthoung, although it’s possible to add on a visit to the Mergui Archipelago during a Thailand luxury yacht charter, as Phuket is situated nearby.
Destinations to add to your Myanmar itinerary include Barwell Island, Island No. 115, Nyaung Wee Island, Great Swinton Island, Za Det Nge Island and Rhino Island. Expect to visit gorgeous sun-kissed beaches, take the tender to mangrove forests, snorkel at spectacular underwater sites, sail to see the Moken sea gypsies, take jungle walks along freshwater creeks, talk to monks at the local monastery and anchor in the magnificent fjord of Jar Lann Kyun.
The best time to experience a luxury yacht charter vacation in Myanmar is during the dry season, which runs from October through to May. This makes the South East Asia country an ideal alternative to winter getaways in the Caribbean.
