    What to Expect
    We will pick you up from your hotel in Myeik (downtown).

    We make an early start from Myeik’s Seik Nge Jetty. It's a one and a half hour cruise to Dome Island. Feel the fresh sea breeze as we pass beautiful mangrove forests. Here and there tiny villages line the shore. The people who live here catch fish, crabs, mussels and oysters.

    Our first stop will be Dome Waterfall, which cascades down from high above right into the ocean. You are able to climb up and a have a refreshing bath. Please be careful walking around on the slippery rocks and respect the fishing boat, which might refill their fresh water supplies.

    Later on we arrive to Dome Nyaung Mine Village. The fishermen share their place with sea gypsies, which are called Moken in the local language. Their lifestyle reminds us of a simpler time before bank accounts and life insurance. Many spend their life permanently at sea during the dry season, only seeking the shelter of land when the heavy rains come. We will have seafood and vegetarian lunch in the authentic village.

    After lunch we cruise on to Smart Island for swimming and snorkeling in pristine waters. The shapes of the island with one long beach and three smaller one is one of its kind. The long and the small beaches are within 5-10 minutes walking distance. Enjoy you afternoon relaxing, swimming, playing, sunbathing and whatever else you would like to do.

    And then with the last rays of sunshine dancing on the sea we return to Myeik. Transfer back to your hotel.

    This day tour is designed for people who would like to explore the most of the Archipelago in one day and don’t mind spending a few hours on a speedboat. The rewards will one of the most beautiful beaches you have seen.

    Please note: The tour itinerary can change on tide and weather conditions.

    Be aware that „life seeing tours“ operates as a re-seller and once you have booked they don’t care about you. We booked online a „3 Days / 2 Nights - Mergui Archipelago - Island Stay“ for Nyaung Oo Phee island for around 400 USD per person. This was the only frustrating

    Response from lifeseeingtours, Manager at Mergui Archipelago - Island Day Tour
    Responded 5 May 2019
    Thank you very much for taking the time writing such a detailed review for our services. I take this matter very serious and have been investigating what went wrong. I found out that our supplier had brought you to one really good spot for snorkeling in the morning of the second day, but the tour guide had not considered it not save to snorkel there at the time being for the other tour members. Of course this can be frustrating, but it is a joint tour and you know this before you leave. As our supplier does cater mainly for Asian Tourists, where safety, comfort, service and food is more important then snorkeling it makes a difference. Lucky the dive master took initiative and you had a great afternoon around your private island. Unfortunately for both of us the phone connection did not work so you could not reach us through our emergency line. An email is addressed to one person and i have taken that day off to go on a trip myself and left the phone with operation. As i wrote i did not intervene is simple because there where no changes as I wrote the email the next day. So my trust in the Victoria Cliff Resort Team was right as the dive master took you out on a local boat. We had other guest who really enjoyed the facilities and highlighted that the best was to be alone on the island. Interestingly you gave the Victoria Cliff Resort a 5 stars review. So it seems you a great time there. To sum it up there were things out of my hand, and I did apologize for the inconvenience straight after you came back from the island and I hope we would find an agreement. I understand that 365 USD are a lot of money and that i and my supplier have to deliver the services outlined. As you stated we started communicating straight away about island names and places and yes this can be tricky. Myanmar, Thai, English, and fantasy names makes it hard to keep track. However what should not went wrong was that I have not replied you. I have not ignored your email I simple was waiting for the reply from Victoria Cliff Resort if they would also participate in a refund. They never came back to me on this and somehow i got really busy and must have forgotten to offer the refund. To future customers: I contacted Martin (tiggerle) again to work things out. Martin has taken my apology, but has declined a refund and leaves the review active. I explained to him again that things where unfortunate and i hope that in case i forget an email future customers would send me a friendly reminder. Kind regards, Andre Schneegass
