These islands in Mergui Archipelago are not ready yet and other island are pure virgin. We have searched for a place that would at least resemble.

If considering a boat tour on the Mergui Princess through the archipelago (booking through Asian Tours): Expect excellent communication with Zsa Zsa, at the office. The tour was also very well-organised at the Kawthaung end. Don't expect a safety briefing of any sort. Do expect small groups - the boat has berths for six (one room without a shower and... More

We have searched for a place that would at least resemble Thai sea when we visited it for the first time almost 25 years ago: beautiful sea and beaches, good food, and above all, no tourists. Discovering the Mergui Archipelago seemed to fit all the criteria. With very few companies operating there (and most of them being luxury yacht charters... More

Most of these islands here are unexplored. Accessibility from outside world can be done by registered tourist agencies. Although it's European name "Mergui" refers to Myeik in Myanmar or Marit in Thai, the islands are preferred to be approached via Kawthaung. The highlights included Moken village at Ma Kyone Galet (မကြုံဂလတ်) in Bo Cho Island (ဗိုလ်ချိုကျွန်း), the oldest mangrove forest... More

Whether you're an adventurous beach bum or lazy mermaid, I'd recommend traveling the Mergui (Myeik) Archipelago with Intrepid on their comfort catamaran trip. Why? Beautiful, comfortable boat, experienced English speaking skipper, cook, crew and guide, eco-friendly delicious meals and policies and customizable itinerary based on the tides, winds or your whims. Pick up is conveniently in Phuket, and the company... More

We took a trip on the Meta IV in the Mergui Archipelago. The Trip started in Kawthung, the southern peak of Myanmar. A very warm atmosphere gave us a nice welcome on the boat. From the start we have been spoiled by the crew and especially the chef. He created in his kitchen phantasmic surprises for each meal we took... More

We cruised on the Meltemi 50ft Catamaran with Captain Roland and his amazing crew. Chef Cailin who produced amazing meals and Zoly who looked after our very need. The islands were amazing, white sand beaches and aquamarine water. The snorkelling was excellent and we managed to catch Wahoo and traded squid and crabs off the local fishing boats which were...
