Ngwe-Saung, Myanmar’s latest beach resort has the longest shore—nine miles. It is located just 29 miles from Pathein in the Ay­eyawady Region. Popular with the travellers who prefer much less crowded beach, clean and white sand, and the crystal clear sea water free of seaweeds and the like, Ngwe-Saung is likely to surpass the other local counterparts very soon in many aspects. The recent com­pletion of Nga-Wun Bridge also facilitates the road transport service for this seaside resort.

Why so special
