Fancy a trip to some of the world’s most remote islands?
FMI Air can take you there thanks to a new direct flight route to Kawthaung, Myanmar’s southernmost city and the gateway to the 8000 islands that form Myeik Archipelago.
The new route comes as part of a network extension that also includes a new route to Myitkyina. From Yangon, the non-stop jet flight to Kawthaung will take just one hour before you arrive in tropical paradise.
Promotional fares available now start at 98,000 MMK (or less than US$75). Flights to and from Kawthaung will depart on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday starting April 2.
The waters off Kawthaung are home to some of Southeast Asia’s most pristine coral reef, and overnight boat trips are available for exploring the outer-lying islands. Of special note are Cocks and Combe, a rocky outcrop hiding a turquoise lagoon, and Say Tan Island, where wild monkeys preside over a lush forest interior.
Kawthaung is also a border-crossing city to the Thailand port of Ranong.
