Chaung Tha Beach

Chaung Tha Beach is located 40 km to the west of Pathein (Bassein) in Ayeyarwaddy Division. It is a very convenient drive from Yangon via Pathein taking about 5 hours. There are bungalow type hotels along the beach with modern facilities.
Myanmar owing to its natural environmental diversity is rich in many sites that feature untouched coastal areas , calm and peaceful ocean waters and wide stretches of unpolluted sandy beaches.
While listening to the whispering of the wind in the trees and among the palm fronds and to the regular sleep inducing beat of the ocean breakers as you relax in your rattan chair amidst the balmy breezes you will find yourself visibly relaxing and your cares and tensions slipping away.
Those who wish to engage in play activities on the beach may wish to take a dip in the ocean and ride the ocean waves or take a traditional bullock cart ride along the extensive stretches of the sandy beach.
Others may prefer to stroll along the seashore and visit nearby villages to sample the local cuisine and buy trinkets and ornaments fashioned from sea shells , cowries , mother of pearl , huge rock-shrimp and crabs , fossilized marine flora and unusual coral formations etc , to take back as souvenirs or presents upon their departure.
There are 15 top class hotels in Chaung Thar to cater to their every need. Some of the well-known ones are Max Hotel , Lai Lai Hotel , Ambo Hotel and Khine Chaung Thar. Those who find the atmosphere of cities stifling , the pressures of work stressful and the responsibilities of modern life becoming burdensome may shed their manifold worries for a while by visiting and enjoying a restful holiday interlude at Chaung Thar Beach.
