We took a trip on the Meta IV in the Mergui Archipelago. The Trip started in Kawthung, the southern peak of Myanmar. A very warm atmosphere gave us a nice welcome on the boat. From the start we have been spoiled by the crew and especially the chef. He created in his kitchen phantasmic surprises for each meal we took... More

We cruised on the Meltemi 50ft Catamaran with Captain Roland and his amazing crew. Chef Cailin who produced amazing meals and Zoly who looked after our very need. The islands were amazing, white sand beaches and aquamarine water. The snorkelling was excellent and we managed to catch Wahoo and traded squid and crabs off the local fishing boats which were...

We spent a week exploring the Mergui Archipelago on the Mergui Princess. We left from Kawtaung and the itinerary and boat crew were fantastic. There were many different activities, from trekking, kayaking and snorkeling each day. As with most places in Myanmar, this is not a luxury trip, and I do not recommend this trip to anyone who can't roll... More

We spent six day (5 nights) in Raja Laut discovering the undiscovered Mergi Archipelago in the South of Myanmar. It was simply amazing and we loved it: a beautiful boat, all wood and quite spacious cabins (no airco in the cabin), a great crew, supreme food (thanks Ben, the great cook!) and lots of activities in the different desert islands...

We had a week on board the Meta IV in late March 2016 and this was the best holiday we have had. The crew were fantastic and the islands were amazing. We spent a lot of time in the water snorkelling on some fabulous reefs - lots of fish and lots of healthy coral too. The trip was organised superbly... More

Booked a 4 day/3 night liveaboard excursion aboard Mergui Princess (merguiprincess.com). Boat had capacity for 16, but there was just myself and another couple supported by delightful 5 member Myanmar crew. Food, accommodations, information, locations and equipment were all excellent. Snorkeled twice a day; some spots were clearer than others, mixture of lively and very dead coral too. Saw range... More

We spent 2 days in the southern portion of the archipelago by taking two separate day-trips while staying in Ranong, Thailand. The tour was well organized and took care of the paperwork (crossing from Thailand to Myanmar and back) for us. The trip is about 1.5 hours by speedboat. On the 1st day, we visited Horse Shoe island, Tafook island... More

We designed our trip around sailing with Burma Boating and it was the low point of our month SEA trip I'm sorry to say. The lack of quiet AND AC (for a guest needing the AC) meant too much noise and a vibrating bed. I expected a quiet insulted generator from their description. The on board team is great; the... More
