Myanmar’s Quiet Days and Rural Ways

The Khiri Travel Myanmar team spent a few days inspecting the tropical beaches of southwest Myanmar. They stayed a few days in Ngapali and Maung Shwe Lay and had a great experience. During their visit, they took the opportunity to observe the daily lives of local people.

Even though we got up early there was already a lot of activity – like these farmers who were using their buffalos to drag logs along the beach – possibly for use in construction or for firewood.

After the fishermen have delivered the catch, the women drag the nets out in the water to rinse and clean them, before getting them ready for the next night’s fishing trip.

Ox-drawn carriages on Maung Shwe Lay

Ox-drawn carts are a convenient way to travel between places on Maung Shwe Lay Island. The locals even prefer using the sandy beach to the rough and bumpy road further inland.

When we arrived on Ngapali Beach, Sandoway Resort invited us for breakfast. This is a view from their outdoor restaurant – four ladies were carrying firewood along the beach.
