Myanmar (Burma) - Western Myanmar (Chapter)
This is the Western Myanmar chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
The few tourists who make it here tend to confine themselves to the Ngapali Beach resorts, given the pristine sand and turquoise waters of the Bay of Bengal. Yet those with more adventurous aspirations can head to the atmospheric state capital Sittwe, the old Rakhine capital of Mrauk U and underdeveloped Chin State, an area of mountains, forests and culture.
- lose yourself amid the temples and fortifications in timeless Mrauk U, former capital of Rakhine
- savour the seafood, sand and resorts of Ngapali Beach, Myanmar’s most sophisticated beach destination
- boat to Chin villages upriver from Mrauk U, where tattoo-faced women lead you around by the arm
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: When to Go, Rakhine State, Ngapali Beach, Sittwe, Mrauk U, Chin State, Mt Victoria (Nat Ma Taung), Paletwa & Around.
