Luxury Yacht Charter Myanmar/Burma

Yacht Charter in Myanmar/Burma

It is still fairly difficult to enter the south-east Asian country of Myanmar as a tourist. An international boycott has been in placed for several years due to the harsh military regime. However, the southern islands of the Mergui Archipelago which lie off the Tennasserim coast are accessible to a very privileged number of yacht charters. The archipelago of more than 800 islands was strictly closed to foreigners until 1997, but several companies now offer charters in one of the last untouched paradises on earth. The islands themselves are densely forested while many are mountainous. The beaches are some of the most stunning in the world, with soft sand and emerald blue sea.
