Dawei is trading hub set deep in the south of Myanmar, at the mouth of a river estuary. Hidden under a lush canopy of swaying coconut palms and tall betelnut trees, this quaint town is a refreshing change from the busier destinations in Myanmar. While there is much to discover in Dawei, from beautiful artwork, historic architecture, colonial buildings and busy fish markets, its real attraction lies in the mile after mile of white sandy beach flanked by lush tropical woodlands. Closed to foreign visitors until recently, Dawei is truly Myanmar at its authentic best.
