Ngwe Saung, also known as Silver Beach, is a lovely 13-mile long white-sand stretch of beach facing the Bay of Bengal in Myanmar. Accessible via land by way of a 260km-long, five-hour drive through the Ayeyarwady Delta from Yangon, the long journey is made worthwhile upon your first glimpse of the tropical paradise that awaits you when you disembark. A favourite ... More>weekend getaway haunt for Yangon’s nouveau riche, despite booming tourism, locals still retain the original, simple beauty of their traditional everyday lives. The beachside is lined with a string of both upscale luxury resorts and inexpensive inns, making the area suitable for both travelers looking for a lavish stay and those wanting to stay on a tight budget. Several hotels and resorts arrange day trips to the famous elephant training camp halfway between Ngwe Saung and Pathien, but we recommend staying at 54-room Myanmar Treasure Resort, a four-star beachfront property with a comprehensive list of onsite facilities.
