Myanmar (Burma) Luxury Yachting Guide

Dense jungles, exotic wildlife and spiritual heart are just a small part of the intrigue of Myanmar. Still relatively undiscovered and sheltering some of Asia’s most breathtaking sights, sailing this magnificent coastline by superyacht is the perfect way to explore this once isolated nation.

Myanmar occupies a curiously compelling region of South East Asia, bordering the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal, while its coastline runs from the Bangladesh border in the northwest down to Thailand and the Malay Peninsula in the southeast. Myanmar is an ultimate escape from the western world, still so heavily entrenched in its own spiritualism and cultural history. The untouched jungles and forests are perfect for exhilarating trekking and safaris, while the inland cities offer a world of Asian delights.

Yangon
The capital of Yangon is a bewitching city of gilded temples, bustling markets and over-flowing food stalls sitting on the southern end of Myanmar. Surrounded on three sides by water, Yangon is a thriving port town simply buzzing with a frenetic energy. Not to be missed is the golden Shwedagon Pagoda, one of Asia’s most amazing Buddhist shrines and a truly spectacular sight.

Spend a day getting lost in the maze-like aisles of the endless Bogyoke market before heading to Kandawgyi Lakes near the city centre for an unforgettable sunset view of the glittering Shwedagon.

Ayeyarwady River
Cruising the smooth waters of the Ayeyarwady River is one of Myanmar’s greatest pleasures. No other stretch gives such a unique insight into the authentic heart of this Asian treasure, revealing an elegant landscape of towering monasteries nestled in between canopied trees and ruined temples. Framed by this majestic river is Bagan, an amazing old-city resembling a field of glowing temples that makes the ideal setting for an unforgettable hot air balloon ride.

Mandalay
Mandalay is a fantastically spiritual city in central Myanmar standing seductively alongside the banks of the Ayeyarwady River. With the intoxicating atmosphere of a sprawling oriental bazaar, this captivating city is an enthralling shopping experience like no other.

Mergui Archipelago
Off the west coast is the Mergui Archipelago; a chain of over 800 virtually unexplored jungle-rich islands brimming with intriguing wildlife but rarely visited by travellers. These gorgeous islands are home to startling white beaches ringed by vibrant coral reefs and framed by luscious jungle. This region of the world is a true explorer’s delight, studded with soaring rock pinnacles and hidden lagoons accessible only through caves at low tide.
