|HOW TO ARRIVE||
This one way cruise in the Mergui Archipelago departs from the city of Kawthaung in Southern Myanmar, right at the border with Thailand, and arrives in the port of Myeik. It is pretty easy to arrive there, and you can choose among different travel options.
Flying to Kawthaung: If you are already in Myanmar, you can fly directly to Kawthaung Airport, which is connected to various national airports and served by different local airlines. The most reliable and convenient travel company is Myanmar Airways.
Flying to Ranong: Another option is to fly to Ranong Airport. There are daily flights from Bangkok National Airport, managed by the airline Nok Air. From Ranong, we will take a long keel boat to cross the Pakchan River, and thus reach Kawthaung on the Myanmar side. The crossing takes only a few minutes, and we will help you with the customs practices before getting on the boat. The airport is well-served by local taxi drivers, who can take you to the boarding point on the Pakchan river. Alternatively, we can welcome you directly at the airport.
Arriving from Phuket: Phuket International Airport represents a good and convenient starting point to fly to Kawthaung. It is also possible to venture on a suggestive car trip to Ranong (4 hours), which is located at the border with Thailand, and reach Kawthaung by crossing the Pakchan River.
Disembark port: Myeik can best be reached by plane from Yangon. There are several daily flights. You can also take a short domestic flight from Kawthaung which will only take about 45 minutes. We do not recommend traveling to Myeik over land as road conditions might not be good and local transport companies are not ready to accommodate foreign travellers.

Spend the evening in its most beautiful bay, isolated and quite, watching monkeys playing on the beach, being rocked to sleep from the night, listening to the sweet sound of the gibbons.
The cabin crew sail during the sunrise and while having breakfast, we arrive to Great Western Torres Islands, one of the best spots of the archipelago for snorkeling and scuba diving. You could choose between diving or just relaxing on the amazing white sand.
