Say goodbye to city life at Awei PilaMergui Archipelago, Myanmar
If you want to get away from just about everything, you won’t do much better than Awei Pila in the Mergui Archipelago. This seafront resort is located on a private island about 80 kilometres from Myanmar’s mainland. Its 24 yurt-style huts all face the private beach and Andaman Sea, with lounges on the sand beckoning your lazy butt.
Take a visit to the local Moken people, who once lived as seafaring nomads but these days spend part of the year ashore. Otherwise it’s an all-in kickback situation. Take a stroll through the surrounding jungle looking for gibbons and pythons, or borrow a mask and kayak to paddle between islands exploring the reef as you go.
