Captain Sunti Sonngay, of 41 metre Rodriquez Ocean Emerald, available for charter with Camper & Nicholsons, reveals his favourite island-hopping route through this remote region of Myanmar, closed to foreign visitors until 1996...
Embark in the small border town of Kawthaung (formerly Victoria Point) between Myanmar and Thailand. Wander around the food market and sample local delicacies such as fried chicken and freshly pressed sugar palm juice.
Once the paperwork is done, Ocean Emerald will cruise 15nm to Thay Yae Kyun (Barwell Island), where you can swim and kayak by the sand spit.
