The Starlight Guesthouse will be CLOSED FOR BUSINESS on the 28th of April, 2019. We are moving to the new Starlight Resort. Look for the opening announcement in the future. We are still waiting for electric service!

There have been rumors that Starlight Guesthouse (in Ye, Mon State) is not licensed to accept foreign guests. This is NOT true. We have the correct license. Please do not believe any story that Starlight cannot host foreigners. Also, travelers have been told that they cannot even visit Ye. People have cancelled their planned visit because they were told by travel agencies and hotel staff (in other cities) that Ye is off-limits now. This is not the case! Don’t skip Ye because of inaccurate information.
Come experience a place of the past, anxious for the future. Ye (pronounced YAY) is the largest town in Southern Mon State. Until late 2013, it was off-limits to foreigners. Visitors are now welcome, and you can discover a culture and a landscape that has been unseen by outsiders since before the Second World War. The people are as curious about you as you will be by them. Southern Myanmar isn’t cluttered with franchise shops and the cookie-cutter sameness of so many tourist destinations. You will be amazed by totally new experiences of sights, sounds and traditions.
Come and stay with us at Starlight Guesthouse. We will introduce you to the area, assist in planning day trips, recommend the local highlights and arrange for transportation, with English speaking guides to accompany you. Bring your camera! It’s a photographer’s dream land.
Check our activities page for festivals and special events in Ye and surrounding areas. It’s a great way to experience a variety of food, music, sports, Myanmar culture and other entertainment. Come see us if you really need to get away from it all. Ye is completely different from the world that you are familiar with!
