Rakhine state – a fragile tourist paradise?

Burma has a long coastline towards the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal. This area is home to some of the region’s most beautiful beaches. Ngapali beach in the Rakhine state is one of these beaches and it is also one of the very few high-end tourist destinations in Burma. However, it is located in a region with a violent conflict between muslims and buddhists which make its future as a tourist destination uncertain.

The fishermen have always used the beach for drying fish. Today the tourists use the pristine beach for sunbathing and the hotel owners consider the smell of drying fish bad for business. Foto: Linda Nordby
