S/Y Mahayana is offering an incredible Last Minute Yacht Charter to explore the world famous and mysterious Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (aka Burma). Due to an unforeseen cancellation, we are offering a huge 40% discount for this last minute yacht charter between 12th and 20th December 2019.
Sailing north from Phuket. Along the Similan and Surin Islands of Thailand, you enter the Mergui Archipelago of Myanmar (Burma). Also known as Myeik Archipelago. The islands are made of a mix of granite and limestone formations and are commonly covered by tropical rain forest.
The Archipelago lies north of Thailand, on the west coast of the Malay Peninsula. They consist of more than 800 islands of different shapes and sizes. Totaling over hundreds of square kilometers!
The local people are mostly fishermen of the Moken, a tribe of Sea Gypsies. The Moken are sea-dwelling people. They live on many islands in the Andaman Sea, like Surin and Koh Lipe and even further south. They follow their traditional way of life since centuries. Their life is based on fishing, building boats, catching crabs and collecting food. Stunning wildlife covers many of the islands you are about to visit. You can find boar, deer, monkeys and a bewildering selection of tropical birds including a rare type of hornbill.
Opened to foreign tourism in 1997
The area was only opened up to foreign tourism in 1997 after negotiations between Burma and dive operators from Phuket in Thailand. The archipelago’s isolation is such, that much of it has not even yet been thoroughly explored. Although a five-star casino and golf resort was opened on Thahtay Kyun Island. The islands are still pristine and very little affected by civilization as we know it. As of yet, there is next to no infrastructure or development. One of the only ways to visit these waters and some of the best dive sites in the world is by sailing with us.
