Dawei

 

Dawei, in Tanintharyi Division, is a coastal region lies in Southern part of Myanmar with an area of more than 2,600 square miles. Various nationalities such as Bamar, Mon, Kayin, Rakhine and Shan totalling over 120,000 are residing in Dawei. Formerly the city was known as "Tavoy".

Dawei is dotted with famous historical pagodas and can be accessible with all means of transportation. A place to visit in Dawei is Maungmakan Beach, a well-known beauty spot of Myanmar, which is about 10 miles from Dawei.

As Dawei is in the coastal region, fisheries become the mainstay of the economy there. Sea-fish and prawn are sufficient enough not only for local consumption but also for the international market. Lobsters are stored in clean water tank at 17.C for about five minutes after weighing them. Then, lobsters are dressed and packed in plastic for export. Moreover, jelly-fish are also exported to the international market.

Most local people make their living by trading in regional goods. Some have rubber, oil palm, cashew and mango plantations and they also cultivate paddy. This is a wrap-up of the simple Dawei people's life and breath-taking beauty spots of Dawei which today boosts modern characteristics of developed cities.
