Travel in southeast Asia Guide / ASEAN
Menu
Southeast Asia is an ideal travel holiday and vacation destination offering all what people like for their most precious time of the year regardless of age and gender. Most countries which are clustered along the equator are tuned for the tourists and have the right spots to make everyone happy. What needs you to do? Not much just do as locals do which means such simple things keep in mind that east meets west but with different traditions and rules. Hotels and resorts are plenty beaches and island too and just think positive there is no need to be negative because everything is not the way you are used at home. ​​
Kawthaung and south Myanmar
A knowledge based Myanmar (Burma) travel guide
South Myanmar is a pristine area in the Andaman with around 1000 islands around somehow similar to the Indian side.

Since colonial times the government didn't allow anyone in. They only issued fishing licenses to Thai vessels and allowed some live-aboard yachts for scuba diving from Phuket which have to clear formalities at Kawthaung and move into the island world for underwater exploration.

That is probably the best until now for travelers, the islands could be a prime exotic travel destination but they don't do anything. Although they allow now (2016) to enter the country at land borders (Kawthaung) but it won't mean a lot because it still needs a visa from the embassy, e.g. Bangkok. But there is a way to do you it with fewer problems, call Thailand 022 670 390 that is Friendly Star Travel in the capital, they can handle it when you send the passport and pay the fee. All this was changed some time ago again  but something is still

working it could be a way when needed.

The southernmost point of the country in that area is Kawthaung but the interesting

part for south Myanmar island holiday starts at Myeik.

Exotic island trips could start at Kawthaung which is the southernmost city opposite Ranong in Thailand.

Under the British, this was "Victoria Point" named after their queen. Today this is a real rotten place just as it was when they run away afraid of the Japanese and came back hiding behind the US Forces. They did the same in Malaysia where they run away when they heard that the Japanese were coming.

Finally, one man from Penang made contact with the Japanese who camped at the Thai border ready to move. So the whole war game was over without a shot fired.

Today there is the connection with small ships and longtail boats over the bay between Myanmar and Thailand but it needs a visa to enter the country and that visa is available in their Bangkok Consulate only.  

It is clearly visible how surreal these people work. Kawthaung has also been used as entry point for liveaboard trips into south Myanmar's Myeik Archipelago an ideal place for tropical vacation.

The high mountains in the north are rather unusual adventure trips bacause difficuly to access.

Although there are several flights per day from Yangon to Putao which is the main city up there.

The capital of the northern Kachin State is Myitkyina
