Myeik City Sight Seeing & Island Tour (3D2N)
Day 1: Myeik City Sight Seeing (Joint Trip)
We will pick you up at 8:00 AM from your hotel / guesthouse or welcome you at Myeik Airport (only if you arrive with morning flight).
Myeik is one of the biggest fishing towns in Myanmar. In the early 17th century, the English 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. We will talk about its incredibly interesting history.
“Beik”, as the locals call it their 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 visit a ship dock yard where they still build the wooden boats like in the old days. One of the main export products are soft shell crabs. We will explain you on a farm how the crabs take off their shells.
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.
Myeik’s dry fish area might not be for everybody, but it has not change for decades. We will take you for a wander and explain what fishes been tried in the sun to preserve them for later.
The pearl industry is another of Myeik’s businesses. How difficult it is to cultivate them will be explained at the Pearl Trading Shop, which is run by the same family for over a hundred years. We continue with a stroll along Myeik’s office street through the colonial quarter.
For sunset we have two options, either we take a traditional long tail boat across to Pathaw Pathet island (10min, on your own expense) and walk up a little mountain for a magnificent 360 degree view on the town nearby island or we stay in town and mingle with the locals at Thein Daw Gyi Pagoda.
