Ngwe Saung is the location of several beach resorts and a small village in the Irrawaddy region of Myanmar.

Get in

You can take a bus from Pathein or Yangon. The roads are not that good, so for the about 210 km from Yangon it will take about 6 hours, depending what bus you take. You can also go by boat from Yangon to Pathein.

Get around

You may rent a bicycle or take the bicycle taxis. Renting motorbikes is not a good idea, otherwise the unspoilt place will soon become like an overcrowded Thai beach resort.

See

The endless and quiet white sand beach, the lover's island, there is an 'elephant camp' in between Ngwe Saung and Pathein.

Do

Go to the beach, see the local village. There is not much to do in Ngwe Saung, that's the idea. Just relax and enjoy the quiet time.

Buy

Painted umbrellas made in town or in Pathein.

Eat

  • See Sar restaurant in town for meals US$2-5.
  • Sunny Paradise restaurant at the resort for US$5-10.

Drink

There is no disco, however the very modern and stylish Bay of Bengal hotel has sometimes disco like events.

Sleep

  • Myanmar Treasure - US$70+
  • Pearl Beach Resort Hotel - ~US$30
  • Sunny Paradise - ~US$50-70
  • Emerald Sea Resort, on Ngwe Saung Beach (1 miles south of the village), +95-42-40247, [1]. checkin: 1:00pm; checkout: 12:00 noon. Sometimes... reality is..far..better than ..Dreams..... $60+.
