Why go to Hainan? Discover Burma’s untouched beaches and fascinating island world with Burma Boating. Save 10 percent on all trips before October – in Burma’s Mergui Archipelago or along the spice trade route to Borneo. Click here to get the exclusive Shanghaiist discount!
Burma Boating was founded by two young Shanghai-based expats and passionate sailors. They discovered the Mergui Archipelago during one of the golden week holidays. On their journey, they came across Indigenous sea nomads still traveling around the region in their dugout canoes. And there was not a footprint in the sand on any of the beaches they visited. Burma Boating was born right then and there while they were still on their holiday.
The 800+ islands currently see less than 2000 visitors per year and are virtually void of any infrastructure. There are basically no hotels, no cities, no cargo ships and you can travel there for weeks without seeing any other tourists.
Burma Boating operates two classic wooden yachts: The 85 foot two-master Meta IV and the 100 foot gaff-topsail schooner Raja Laut. Both yachts are fully crewed with captains, chefs, stewards and all modern an equipped you would expect from a luxury boutique cruise.
Hurry up if you want to discover Burma, as the rainy season in the Mergui Archipelago starts in late April. The company normally charges EUR 1,800 (less than CNY 15,000) per person for a 6-day-trip in Myanmar.
From May to September Burma Boating cruises along the ancient spice trade route from Burma to Borneo, passing Langkawi, Singapore, the Tioman Islands and many of the tiny beautiful island the South China Sea has to offer.
