Introducing Chaung Tha Beach

Chaung Tha Beach, 25 miles west of Pathein, is a place of holiday excess for the Myanmar middle class. There’s paddling in the water, floating about on rubber rings, plodding up and down on ponies, wasting money on tacky souvenirs, boisterous beach football games and happy family picnics. As with other beaches of this type in Southeast Asia, it’s not the most awe-inspiring piece of coastline you’ll ever encounter, but if you need to squeeze some sand and sun into your visit to Myanmar, it is the most convenient option.
