I seem to be missing a bunch of video from my exploration of the town of Chaungthar itself. That's all right. The town was interesting, but crowded and dirty, especially since I was there during the first weekend of 2016 and the place was packed with local tourists from Yangon.
Yes, the beaches north of Chaungthar are not to be missed. Not only are they beautiful with soft white sands and warm clear water, but they're also empty. You get them all to yourself. That's nice, but at the same time, I for one like a beach chair. Maybe a beachfront restaurant with cold beverages. The beaches near Shwetaungyan have got that too! Well, at least a couple of them do.
Enjoy the video!
