Ngwesaung is a beach resort located 48 km west of Pathein, Ayeyarwady Region, Myanmar. The beach is 5 hours' drive away from the principal city of Yangon, and an airport is in the works. Opened in March 2000, NgweSaung is newer than nearby and more popular Chaungtha Beach, and is designed to attract people with larger holiday budgets.
Chaungtha is a village and beach resort located in Ayeyarwady Region, Myanmar. Chaungtha Beach, as it is more commonly known, is about 5 hours' drive away from Yangon, and is a popular resort with Yangonites from October to April. As it is relatively more affordable than the nearby Ngwesaung and Ngapali beaches, Chaungtha is also more crowded and less cleanly than the two more expensive and better maintained beaches.
An unspoilt, sleepy beach holiday destination situated in the Bay of Bengal, with its white sand and crystal clear water, Ngapali Beach awaits the world to discover. It is a place where time stands still, allowing you to simply "switch off" and recharge your batteries. It's a beach -- you can relax under a palm tree and go swimming occasionally. Water is very clear and the white sand on the beach won't disappoint either. The beach looks west, meaning that there will be not so much of sun in the morning but a beautiful sunset in the evening. Ngapali is prime choice for beach lovers dream about: quiet, white sand, the quiet rural surroundings, Rakhine ways of life, local fishing style, etc...
