The lesser known Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia’s best season is about to begin…and although with the peak season comes the crowds, we happen to know of some remote regions that remain unvisited by the masses. 

With the ending of the military rule in the government and the absolute winning of the parliamentary elections by the National League for Democracy, it’s the perfect time to visit Myanmar.

Explore a corner of the world blissfully untouched by tourism and share endless ocean vistas with only the sporadic local fishermen. The magical Myanmar offers a mystical Buddhist purity and essence of old Asia, with customs, dress and cuisine.

For the sea lovers, the best way to explore is on board a luxurious traditional private sailing yacht. Providing the perfect launch pad to some of the country’s most exquisite and remote castaway fantasies: the Mergui Archipelago.

Spend your days among desert islands, meeting local tribes and discovering their way of life. Snorkel in the clear waters and kayak to reach hidden lagoons. Meet the Moken people – the so called “sea gypsies” - who live their entire lives from the sea. Hike through tropical forests, valleys and up hills in these untouched islands.

For dinner your crew will be able to prepare freshly caught seafood and you’ll dine under the stars.

As you uncover the secrets of this paradise, you will glide under sail and blissful sun between islands, punctuated with some of the best diving opportunities; in waters that are widely regarded in the top ten dive spots on the planet.

Navigate rocky escarpments to discover hidden crystalline lagoons from your kayaks; reaching untrodden, remote and romantic beaches marked only by your fresh footprints.

As well as relaxing on beyond-perfect beaches, your inner explorers will revel in the discovery of inlets, mangrove channels and sea caves. Drop anchor in secluded bays as the sun falls, in the dramatic fashion you would dream of for your tropical paradise.

By the time you leave and the reality of your experience sets in, you’ll feel like the last people on earth.
