The hotlist: 7 destinations to visit in 2017

6 of 7 6/7


At the southern end of Myanmar lies the Mergui Archpelago, which offers a number of stunning islands to explore that remain mostly untouched and uninhabited. The dense and unruly rainforest contrasts with the soft white beaches makes the archipelago the perfect blend of adventure and luxury for vacationers.

Best for: Jungle adventurers

What to do and see: Sun worshippers will fall in love with the peaceful beaches on the Similan Islands, while more active members of the group will want to save a day to hike up the mountain on Great Swinton Island to capture some incredible panoramic views.

Explore the waters around Clara Island for turtles and other marine life and make time to canoe through the mangrove trees on Lampi Island, now a designated national park. There is some great diving in the Mergui Archipelago, specifically at the Three Islets just south west of Lampi.

When to go: The dry season is between October and May, so the best time of year to visit Myanmar is from November to February.
