By Wendy Updated Oct. 26, 2022

Weather:December is one of the best months to travel to Ngapali. The average daytime temperature is around 34°C (93°F). There is very little rainfall, so humidity is relatively low.

The weather in December is relatively pleasant and cool, so it will be appropriate for both indoor and outdoor activities, but you still need to guard well against the burning sunshine.

Clothing: T-shirts and shorts are appropriate in December. If you want to plan more outdoor activities, you should bring a pair of comfortable sports shoes or flat shoes.

Things to Do

You don’t need to worry that your plans will be ruined by sudden rain, since there is very little rainfall in December. You can plan all kinds of activities, both indoor and outdoor. You can visit authentic fishing villages, savor a seafood feast or enjoy the stunning sunsets.

Visit Authentic Fishing Villages

Ngapali is not only famous for its pristine beach, but also well known as the peaceful home to many fishing villages, both around the beach and in the Thandwe area.

Linthar village is to the north of the beach while Gyeik Taw village (or Jade Taw Village) is to the south. Both can easily be reached by foot or by bicycle. You can pay a visit to the school, or observe the daily lives and the fishing techniques of the fishermen.

Kinmaw village and Maung Shwe Lay village are located around the Thandwe area, which can be only reached by car or by boat.

You may have a chance to see the clay pottery works or learn about daily life and culture in the villages, watch the fishermen spreading out fish to dry in the hot sun, and see them preparing the delicate nets they use for fishing.

You can pay a short visit to the factory which makes table-mats and learn about the way locals weave bamboo strips to make the mats.

No matter which village you go to, you will definitely glean a better understanding of local life and your village trip may be one of highlights of your vacation at Ngapali Beach.
