Myanmar Sailing Experience

Duration: 9 days
From: £1,109.00

Disconnected from the rest of the world, this is the ultimate relaxation sailing holiday. Indulge in freshly prepared meals and loll around in a bean bag as you enjoy spectacular sunsets, and maybe even sleep out on deck under the stars

Sail Burma for nine incredible days on this small group Myanmar sailing experience to the remote Myeij Archipelago. This fascinating corner of the world has remained beautifully frozen in time and is the perfect destination for a ‘digital detox’.

Come and let the Stone Age historical sites mesmerize you, the jungle forests delight you, and the pristine coastlines inspire you on this slow travel adventure.


  • Feast on phenomenal pad thai in Phuket
  • Meet generous and loving Burmese people who will warm your heart with their kindness and generosity
  • Learn about sailing while living on a catamaran yacht
  • White sandy beaches complete with cocktails
  • Navigate the 800 islands of the Myeij Archipelago
  • Snorkel with the turtles off Ba Wei Island
  • Learn about nomadic traditions from Bo Cho Islands ‘sea gypsies’
  • Jungle trek around Kho Yinn Khwa Island
  • Enjoy a campfire on the beach at Swinton Island

The journey begins in Phuket, Thailand from where you’ll cross the Burmese border to explore Myauk Ni Island, Ranong, and Palu Bada. Your journey finishes once again in Phuket.

Difficult to reach and decidedly off the beaten path, the culture of the Burmese islands has been virtually untouched since the early colonial days. Sailing the islands offers a chance to explore the culture, history and cuisine of this beautiful remote region.

You don’t need prior sailing experience to enjoy the journey, it’s open to everyone. But if you’ve been on a voyage or two and would like to help out, your crew will find some deck work for you – especially when entering or leaving port. Life onboard a catamaran yacht is simple, but the adventure is anything but.

Many of the 800 islands in this archipelago are uninhabited and yet to be thoroughly explored. You’ll spend each day sailing from island to island with plenty of opportunity to stretch out on untouched beaches, explore the islands and coral reef be amazed by the colour and natural diversity of this region.

This area is waiting for you to discover and explore. Enquire today and be among the few to experience this mysterious land.

Trip notes

From GBP £1,545 land only

Hotel (2 nights), Overnight boat (6 nights)

The sailing part of this trip is accommodated on board a catamaran boat. Your 46 foot boat is equipped with 4 twin-share cabins and 4 bathrooms. Fresh water is available for showers, and toilets are either electronic or the hand pump variety. The boat is equipped with a motor for times when the wind is not sufficient for sailing. These boats are real yachts and this is a real sailing trip. Yachts are designed to keep sleeping areas to the absolute minimum of space, while maximising common areas as much as possible.

The skipper will allocate the rooms on arrival to the boat and single travellers will be paired up with another passenger of the same sex, this may mean sharing a double mattress. The skipper will also be sharing the yacht’s facilities and sleeping quarters.

While some may find the living quarters quite close, those who are looking to revel in the adventure and exhilaration of an authentic sailing trip usually find any discomfort is more than made up for by the spirit of this sailing experience.

8 breakfasts,
6 lunches,
6 dinners

This trip has a physical rating by the operator of 3 out of 5. Get in touch to find out more about what this means and what to expect.

For the full trip notes please make an enquiry and we’ll send them right away to help you decide if this is the perfect trip for you.

Will I get seasick?

As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.

What kind of boat is it?

You’ll be exploring on board a superior 46-foot catamaran, with spacious common areas and comfortable cabins and bathrooms. Leave your sleeping gear and beach towel at home, as all of this is provided for you.
