YH3’s next Outstation will be held at Chaung Tha, on 24-27 March 2017 (with Monday as a public holiday – Happy Armed Forces Day!). Details of the accommodation options, costs, registered Hashers, & registration details are provided below. The Outstation “Mis-Management Committee” currently comprises Weed Wanker & Little Boy – contact them with queries (& to register with Little Boy).
NB: There will be no Hash in Yangon on 25 Saturday!
The deadline for Outstation registration was 18 March 2017 (open to negotiation if you ask hashily). Last payments before incurring a beer tax of 20,000 kyat (and not securing your bus seat) is to Little Boy, at the Savoy Hotel bar, Wednesday 22 March.
The plan is to travel on Friday and back on Monday by private bus.
There will be an aqua hash: a swim of maybe 400m along the beach. If you have goggles, caps, flippers etc, bring them with you!
Hashers Denis and War War (aka D&W) will be hosting at their cozy beach resort near beautiful mangroves and coconut grove trails.
D&W restaurant and bungalows will be exclusively for the HASH crowd and closed to the public for 25, 26, 27 March.
D&W have a number of accommodation options, from a newly completed bungalow option, to dormitory-style or camping (BYO tent). Hashers must book their accommodation directly with D&W – phone 09422444675 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also a plethora of other accommodation options at Chaung Tha – the Hill Garden Resort has bungalows at around 50,000 kyat, or you could try the Coral Hotel (which is closer up the beach from D&W). Check out booking.com (or other online sites) for these & other options.
Accommodation options with Hashers D&W:
- One of nine newly completed bungalows, available on a first booked first served basis. Each room has a mix of beds for 2 or 3 persons per bungalow @ 50,000 kyat per bungalow fixed price. The cost of the bungalows covers up to three people, including towels, toiletries and drinking water. Individuals can book bungalows for up to three guests and sleep as many extras in excess as desired @ 6000kyat per head in excess of three bodies. An estimated 30 people can stay this way.
2. A bed in a local style bamboo dormitory (BYO linen), which has 4 rooms, each able to accommodate 3-4 persons per room @ 6,000 kyat per person. Toilets, showers and drinking water will be provided. Those not booking the available beds in the bungalows need to bring their own bedding.
3. A “space” or bed in a large spare bedroom in the main house, which has a double bed and plenty of floor space for 3 to 4 others (a family?) @ 6000 kyat per person (toilets, showers and drinking water will be made available – BYO bedding/linen).
4. Pitch a tent, or roll out your swag (for the Australians) in the camping area @ 6000 kyat per person (toilets, showers and drinking water will be made available – BYO bedding/linen/swag).
