Now that we are finish with famous Religious places and historical places around Yangon and Bagan, it’s time to head out to the beach and have a few days of relaxing time.
There are several beaches around Myanmar, but this time we decided to go to Ngwe Saung Beach. A very laid back place with an amazing sunset.
Since we were coming from Bagan, we needed to take the night bus back to Yangon then transfer to another bus terminal bound for Ngwe Saung. We were not familiar with the bus terminal so we asked our bus driver if he can drop us off the nearest area where we can switch to Hlaing Thar Yar bus terminal (Dagon Bus Terminal).
From Yangon, it will take another 7-8 hours to Ngwe Saung but it will greatly depend on your bus driver. The bus ride itself is an adventure. Before reaching Ngwe Saung, it will need to pass over the mountain and the way is well paved but curvy without guard rails and it is also a two way road. If there are two buses coming in from both direction, one needs to stop and make way for the other. If you are planning to visit during the rainy season (May-October) make sure to check if the buses are operating.
We spent a couple of days in Ngwe Saung and it was very relaxing.
Electricity is not 24/7 so sound big hotel have their own power generator.
Food is also good and affordable. The best time to go is during November – April , which is the dry season in the country.
