The lovely silver sands at the fishing village of Ngwe Saung will become more developed, but for now you can enjoy the simplicity of this beautiful 15km-long beach – one of the longest beaches in south-east Asia – with few distractions. Walk along the beach, snorkel the offshore coral, see the sun set over the Bay of Bengal, and browse the few craft stalls and beach-side restaurants. Time back in Yangon provides a wonderful contrast! It’s the perfect antidote to your main challenge.
Once in resort, this extension does not have an organised itinerary. You are free to spend your time as you wish.
We enjoy a city tour of Yangon, a modern bustling city which nevertheless is known for its crumbling colonial architecture sitting alongside buildings with more of a Chinese and Indian influence, as well as gilded Buddhist temples. The main highlight is the magnificent golden Shwedagon Pagoda, which we explore before heading back to the airport for our overnight flight home (arrive Day 5).
