A journey to the heart of the Burmese coast
Golden Sea Resort is the best kept secret in the Bay of Bengal. This unclassifiable place next to the Emerald Sea Hotel in Ngew Saung is an enigmatic beachfront hotel, first line. Six bungalows are cheesy to me, but perfectly hidden. There is no road sign indicating the place. It is a budget hotel that is ideal for fragile and unscrupulous adventurers. At 100 m from the sea it is very basic, $10 for a single and $15 for a double. It has 2 cement bunglows, fanless, no hot water, and it only has electricity 19:00-22:00. Perfect for backpackers who want to live without fuss in a decrepit bungalow on the edge of the sea.
