Sittwe is nestled within an island at the confluence of three rivers that flow into the Bay of Bengal – Kaladan, Mayu, and Lay Mro. Whilst some may recall sectarian violence in this vibrant capital some years ago, today it is considered completely safe for international visitors. Although most guests tend to use Sittwe as a base to explore the ruins of Mrauk U, time spent exploring the city is well worth it. From charming colonial era buildings to beautiful sunsets and bustling local fish markets, Sittwe has a corner for every curious explorer. With an eclectic mix of the old and the new, you will leave with an indelible taste of delicious and authentic Rakhine cuisine.
