  1. Hi.

    I`d like to go there for diving on 14th ~ 17th. I am alone and my level is diving instructor.
    So.. plz let me know you having schedule there or not, and let me know the way how to go there.
    I will be there from Bangkok…so should I go there directly by plain? or must go to Mandalay and go there by bus?

    • Hi Kenny,
      The best way to get to Ngapali is by aeroplane. You can easily find good flight options from Yangon. You can also go by bus from Yangon but it’s a loooong journey (16 hours aprox.)
      But June is low season because of the monsoon season and the diving trips and most of resorts are closed in Ngapali.
      We have to wait for the next season (October – April)!
      Cheers,
      Juan

    • Great! You’ll love diving in Ngapali beach. I paid around US$100 and it included breakfast on the boat, 2 dives and explore a beautiful fishermen village.
