Transindus New Burma Cruise

India specialist Transindus has launched a unique Burma holiday cruising along the country's stunning Andaman coastline.

The 11-day tailor-made trip starts in the capital Yangon, sailing along the Yangon River and across the Gulf of Martaban to the fishing village of Mawlamyine. A side-trip inland to Hpa-an and its spectacular karst formations is next and then on to the wilderness of the Myeik Archipelago and Thayawtnahangyi, studded with beautiful bays of white sand and transparent water before reaching the far-flung Great Western Torres Islands. The itinerary continues on to the Sullivan Islands (a Marine National Park), visiting a Moken ('Sea Nomads') village and then the Aladdin Islands for walks and wildlife spotting. The cruise finishes in the quiet border port of Kawthaung for transfer to Ranong in Thailand.

Excursions on shore include trips to war graves related to the Burma Railway, extraordinary limestone stacks of Hpa-an and the Burmese market town of Mawlamyine.

The 'Pandaw: Yangon to Ranong & the Myeik Archipelago' tour costs from £3,400 per person (based on two people sharing). Accommodation is in one of 11 cabins onboard the MY Andaman, a stylish, 61-metre motor yacht, decked out in retro style with Burmese teak-panelled walls and brass fixtures. The price includes 10 nights’ accommodation with full board on the boat including local beers and spirits, all local transportation and transfers, English-speaking guides and entrance fees to sites and monuments in the tour itinerary.

TransIndus also offers tailor-made luxury sailing-yacht holidays in the Myeik region aboard sleek 70 – 120ft yachts.
