Southern Myanmar

Myeik Archipelago

myeik

Myeik is located in Tanintharyi Region, the most southern part of the country. The town’s economy is based largely on exports of local products, such as tin, tungsten, dried fish, dried prawns, fish paste, salt and rubber. A cultured pearl industry has also developed on some of the nearby islands, particularly Pale Kyun (Pearl Island), about 138 kilometres south of Myeik. Lampi Island, 105 kilometres with mountains topping 450 metres, boasts lovely beaches, coral reefs, clear water and undisturbed wildlife. It has been designated a Marine National park to preserve the environment and attract ecotourists. The Myeik Archipelago consists of many similar Virgin Islands, which typically feature white sandy beaches and are good for snorkeling and scuba diving. The water is so clear that it is enough to see the coral reefs and tropical fish, while there are also abundant lagoon caves, bird nests and waterfalls.

Pathein

pathein

Situated in the delta of the Ayeyarwaddy River, Pathein is the most important port for trade in the delta region. The region is the heart of Myanmar’s paddy cultivation industry but Pathein remains a peaceful little town with a scenic waterfront, many Chinese and Myanmar temples and umbrella workshops. The city’s colourful handmade umbrellas are famous all over Myanmar and are traditionally used by monks and nuns. Lacated some 190 kilometres west of Yangon, Pathein can be reached in three hours by road or by overnight ferry through the alluvial Ayeyarwaddy delta.
