Frances is here to help give you the inside track.

With only a handful of the 800 islands being (sparsely) populated, Mergui is a region where you can sail for days and not meet another soul, except perhaps a passing fisherman in his dugout canoe. And sailing is exactly how you should explore one of the planet’s most unspoilt destinations.

The Mergui Archipelago in Southern Myanmar (Burma) is a region of azure ocean, colourful corals and reef fish, white sand beaches, jungle thickets home to gibbons and monitor lizards, and the fishing villages of the Moken 'Sea Gypsies'.

In our opinion, there is no better way to explore than to hop aboard a luxurious sailing vessel for a three or six night cruise, or join forces with the rest of the family and a few friends to charter your very own sailing boat and crew.

Disconnect from modern day life - there's no wifi here - and spend days lazing on deck in the sunshine, snorkelling, jungle trekking, kayaking through mangrove forests and meeting the semi-nomadic Moken people who call the archipelago home. Evenings are spent on deck dining on the freshest catch of the day, perhaps from your own fair hand / line.
