Optional 2 " Spoon-Billed Sandpiper Expectation"
“Spoon-Billed Sandpiper Expectation” is arranged only from November to March ( Bird migration time to Myanmar). We do recommend it on full-moon day because Spoon-Billed Sandpiper is easy to fine on high tie at full- moon day. Accommodation will be on traditional fishing boat, very basic. Meals should be on package. This optional tour should be booked in advance. If you need more detail information, please contact our team". In our experiences, this trip is suitable for adventure lovers because of very basic infrastructure especially boat. You will need to stay about two days o ne night on these small boat. It is quite difficulties to fine Spoon-Billed Sandpiper in that area. But you will have grade chance to see shore birds on the same trip.
