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 260 km from Yangon it will take about 6 hours, depending what bus you take. You can also go by boat from Yangon to Pathein.
