Myeik Tours and Guides
Tam is a young guy with a passion for Southern Myanmar, originally coming from Hpa-an Tam’s sense of adventure lead him to working in Thailand’s tourism industry. after spending time there Tam realised that the islands of Myeik and the Mergui archipelago are much more beautiful and numerous than those in thailand and he chose to return to his country of origin to assist in developing the tourisum industry in a sustainable way. Contact Tam on +95 9 254 303 230
Unfortunately with a lack of infrastructure in the Mergui Archipelago there are not the same opportunities for the “little guy.” Rather your safety is paramount and only registered vessels are permitted to take tourists.
What better way to explore the 800 lost islands of this majestic archipelago than sailing through, or maybe you would prefer a liveaboard diving package. There are a range of operators to choose from.
