AMAZING Dawei Peninsula - Day Tour
If you like we can skip the hotel breakfast to get an early start and have some delicious breakfast at the local market. We will drive pass rice fields and rural villages until we arrive at a typical fishing village.
We stop every now and then to explain the local agriculture for example rubber and cashew nut plantations (seasonal). The fishing industry is another main income source. Among fresh fish the fishing villages produce dry fish and fish paste (nga pyi, seasonal). The paste for Western tongues is most likely nothing to be fancy with, but for Asian people it is mouth-watering.
We arrive in Kyauk Wap Pyin Village, from where we take a 35 min stroll up the mountain to Dawei Peninsula’s own Golden Rock Pagoda. Enjoy a breathtaking 360 Degree panoramic view to on Dawei River and Grandfathers Beach.
Lunch along the way in a traditional and clean restaurant.
After arrival in an even smaller village, where kids will come to watch the Engelae, which simple means English from colonial times we either proceed to Grand Father Beach - the most stunning beach of the peninsula. All over it is a 4 KM long stretch of pure white sand. For those who want to see the vastness you can rent a motor taxi driver (on your own account).
In the afternoon we start driving back towards Dawei. On the way we stop at a brick factory and learn who bricks are made (seasonal).
Getting closer to the city the toddy palm trees become more and more. Feel free to taste the local liquor and let us know how you like it.
Dinner is to your own account.
