Myanmar's Ngwe Saung Beach Is Amazing!

Ngwe Saung is a beach resort located 48km west of Pathein, Ayeyarwady Region. The beach is 5 hours' drive away from Yangon, so it can be crowded in the weekends and public holidays.
I never knew we had water sports facilities in Myanmar. Honestly, the government never bothered to promote the sport. It's quite understandable as the country is poor and there are very few people who could afford this. Note Myanmar is still a third world country. But things started to change last year. Myanmar Wave Rider Cup 2015 was held in Ngwe Saung on the 28th-31st of October 2015 at the Ngwe Saung Yacht Club & Resort. This is the first event of its kind in Myanmar. What a pleasant surprise!

This video of people surfing at Ngwe Saung beach is just amazing. The water is clear and the beach has a nice stretch. Everything looks just fresh and clean. I'm definitely going there next year.
