Myanmar (Burma) Sailing Adventure ex Phuket

From £1208 for 9 days
Trip Overview
Departing from Phuket, discover Burma on an Intrepid sailing adventure and dive into an aquatic playground that is truly one of the world’s best-kept secrets. While the backpackers, honeymooners and day-spa crowds have swarmed to the beaches of Thailand and Bali, Burma’s remote Myeik Archipelago has remained almost frozen in time since the days of the early colonial explorers. Difficult to reach and well-off the tourist trails, sailing through these islands offers the chance to glimpse back to a time before the internet, phones, convenience stores and even denim existed, and experience the traditional clothing, local foods and martial arts of Burma’s virtually untouched island cultures. Be surprised by the wealth of pristine coastline, jungled forests and historical sights that span back to the Stone Age, and by the generous locals, who carry smiles that will warm travellers just as much as the ever-present sunshine. Perhaps a little sleepy from their solitude, these are the faces that will no doubt spark a tourist boom in these quiet islands – so get in quick before the crowds arrive.

Itinerary & Notes
Sawatdee. Welcome to Phuket, arguably Thailand’s best known island, and certainly its largest. You can arrive at any time, as there are no activities planned for today. Your accommodation for this evening is located in the middle of the Sirinat National Park and is within walking distance of the beach. It's also convenient for those flying in directly to meet the trip, as it's in close proximity to the airport. If you arrive early, Phuket has some excellent beaches and a huge array of restaurants, bars and shopping to choose from. Spend an evening in the hectic hub of Phuket – perhaps laze on the beautiful beaches before the sun goes down or dine at one of the delicious beachfront restaurants. You'll have an early start tomorrow morning, so please regularly check the hotel noticeboard for information about your transfer – this can be altered at short notice. Notes: The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary. The itinerary is subject to change and may vary depending on weather and berth availability. Your skipper will make the final call to ensure your safety at all times.
