DAY 1: ARRIVAL TO MYEIK & CITY TOUR (-/-/-)
Flight to Myeik from Yangon. After check in we will explore Myeik. Already in the early 17th century the East Indian Trading Company were unloading their ships at the port of Myeik. Most of the goods would go inland and from there up to Tanintharyi and further on to the old capital of Siam Ayutthaya. “Beik” as the locals call there hometown produces everything for the fishing industry what is needed. Have you ask yourself where all the ice comes from to keep the seafood fresh? We will visit a wooden boat wharf where they still build the boats like in the old days. Climb up and look workers over their shoulder or just observe the incredible skilled work. As many nations came together the local cuisine became a mix of Burmese, Thai, Malaysian and Indian. We can have a taste of it at the local snack market.
In the afternoon we take a traditional wooden fishing boat to Pahtaw Island (10mins) and visit the reclining Buddha. A small walk up the hill offers a panoramic sunset views on the Mergui Archipelago and Myeik.
