there is nothing to do in thandwe other than visit the local market
the airport that you land at is situated between thandwe town and the beach resort of ngapali
having done lots of travelling i must say that it is beautiful and unspoilt beaches
well worth a visit
dont go if you want a raving nightlife ,bungee jumps and full moon partys
myanmar is well behind us in resources and electricity ofton goes off .and no mobile phone coverage and very little e/mail service.
this all adds to the charm and also enhanched by the wonderfull burmese people
have been twice and am going back in nov for 4 months hopefullyto sow the seeds for our early retiement
On the trip back from bagan to yangon, the plane made a transit at Thandwe which is famous for the nearby Ngapali beach. The airport runaway was so close to the coast that when the plane was about to land, it seemed like going to crush into the sea.
