The new frontier for liveaboard diving in South East Asia is Myanmar / Burma and its 800+ islands of the Mergui Archipelago. After decades of being closed to most international tourists, Myanmar / Burma has opened its doors and quickly become very popular with adventurous travellers. This isn’t just for on land, either. Scuba diving in Myanmar is becoming more and more popular each diving season, and there are plenty of reasons why so many divers want to go there.
Some people still refer to The Republic of the Union of Myanmar as ‘Burma,’ which is a lot easier. In any case, this country located between Thailand’s western border and the north-eastern corner of India, is large, culturally diverse, and has a very long coastline onto the Andaman Sea & Indian Ocean. There are thousands of islands off of the coast of Myanmar, and most are uninhabited, and some unexplored fully. Diving in Myanmar is mostly done from the southern tip of Myanmar’s coastal border with Thailand, in an area known as The Mergui Archipelago. Here, more than 800 tropical islands are home to some very special marine life, some species of which live nowhere else on Earth.
