Travel agents open up remote islands

Harris Island in the Myeik archipelago is opening up to tourists

Travel agencies are planning to open up islands, including Gawringi in Ayeyawady Region, Nyaung Oo Phee in the Myeik archipelago and Thahtay in Tanintharyi Region.

“If you want to go to Gawringi, you have to take a car for four hours from Ngwe Saung beach and then a boat to reach Ngayoatcow village and then take another boat and motorcycle to Nanthapu village. From there you can reach Gawringi. Then there are more than 400 steps. Our first trip will leave on February 1,” said a member of Ladies Travels and Tours staff.

“Nyaung Oo Phee in the Myeik archipelago is very beautiful. Travellers can enjoy an underwater world. It is a rare destination among travel agencies,” said a MAG Travels spokesperson.
