tour description

You will be picked up from Thandwe airport or Ngapali hotel and drive to meet your local boat and guide. Cast off and sail across the ocean for a journey of around an hour.
On arrival to fishing village of Maung Shwe Lay, walk to a local house under the coconut palms on the beach. Bury your toes in the white sand while sipping a refreshing coconut drink. After a brief orientation of the Bay and Maung Shwe Lay village, the day is yours to do as you please. (We recommend joining your guide on a walk through this typical rural fishing village) To see the rural village lifestyle on a beach, visit the Buddhist monastery, elementary school, community library and local houses or if possible, go see the fishing boats and local workshops. A home-cooked lunch will be served at midday.
The afternoon is at leisure. Explore more of the village, spend time with the local school children or relax in a hammock on the beach and swim or snorkel. Then set sail for the white sands of Ngapali where you will be dropped at your hotel.
