Day 1 : Arrival in Yangon and sightseeing
We welcome you to the land of glittering pagodas. On your arrival, our friendly guide and driver will greet you at the airport and we will then visit the Chauk Htet Kyi, with a 66 meters long reclining Buddha, and then check-in at the hotel for refreshments (check-in time is after 2 pm). Afterwards, we will walk around Kandawgyi Park and take photos of Karaweik Hall with views of Shwedagon Pagoda from a distance. The evening we will spend at the grand Shwedagon Pagoda and afterwards go back to the hotel.
Day 2 : Yangon-Myeik by flight, Myeik city sightseeing
After breakfast at the hotel, we will transfer to the airport for the flight to Myeik. Myeik is one of the biggest fishing towns in Myanmar. “Beik”, as the locals call their hometown, produces everything for the fishing industry. We will visit the ship dockyards where they still build the wooden boats like in the old days. One of the main export products is the soft shell crabs. We will most likely see the molting of the crabs as they shed their old shells for brand new ones. We can have a taste of these crabs at the local snack market. We will continue with a stroll along Myeik’s main street through the colonial quarter. For sunset we have two options: either we take a traditional longtail boat across to Pathaw Pathet Island (10 min, on your own expense) and then walk up a small hill for a magnificent 360 degrees view over the town and nearby island, or we stay in town and mingle with the locals at the Thein Daw Gyi Pagoda. Overnight in Myeik.

We will depart the fish farms around 9:15 am and continue to Mergui fishing village which has their unique style of fishing and village life. We will do hiking through the jungle to Phyan Aw (otter) beach where our boat will be waiting. In the jungle, we will see various species of trees and tropical plants. If you are interested in bird watching, you will not be disappointed, although nothing is guaranteed with birds! After the hiking, we will enjoy a local lunch.
