Kayaker in the mangroves - Mergui ArchipelagoTravelling to Burma or Myanmar, as it's now known, seems at first a daunting prospect. Let's face it, the goverment doesn't have the best reputation in the world and it's a very private communist regime that has only opened it's borders since 1997 so very little is known about the country in general.
Dolphin on the boaw wave - Mergui ArchipelagoIn fact diving in Burma is actually very trouble free. The main advantage is you travel there by boat, no flying into Yangoon. Boats leave Thailand and arrive at Kawthong, the Burma immigration point for this trip, the immigration offcials come on to the boat, you pay your visa price and in about one hour, after some shopping Dolphin on the boaw wave - Mergui Archipelagoaround the town, you leave to begin your Burma experience.
(Burma photos)
Burma is an amazing place. The Mergui Archipelago contains over 800 islands and is sparsley populated by Mokken, Burmese sea gypsies, that stay for months at a time on their boats fishing and living amongst the islands and Mangrove swamps.
The special thing about Burma is that you really feel like you are out there doing something unusual and not following the tourist trail. Hundreds of islands hide new dive spots that are found each year, dolphins and whales are not uncommon sights and the mangroves present other treasures such as dugongs, kingfishers, wild pigs and monkeys, there's even reports of tigers and elephants hiding in there, a possibility not as ar fetched as it sounds as both were once common here.Brahmini's kite - a common site in Burma
Either way, having personally spent 3 years working and diving there, I would say that Burma is definitely an experience not to be missed.
