Places to Visit in Myanmar

Around Mawlamyaing

THANBYUZEYAT ”2ND WORLD WAR DEATH RAILWAY TERMINAL”
Thanbyuzeyat (Thanbyuzayat) is a 1-hour drive south of Mawlamyaing and marked the ending of the infamous “Death railway”. Allied Prisoners of War had to build it during the 2nd World War under Japanese rule. The railway linked Thailand with Myanmar. Today there is little more than a newly painted locomotive on display.

WAR CEMETERY
On the outskirts of Thanbyuzeyat is a well-kept Allied War Cemetery in large a compound.

KYAIKKHAMI PAGODA
Previously also known under the name Amherst, it is at the Gulf of Martaban (Andaman Sea) northwest of Thanbyuzeyat. Kyaikkhami Pagoda was built on a small island, connected to the mainland by a bridge-like walkway. During high-tide the lower walkway gets flooded but you can walk on the upper level. The building containing the Buddha Images can’t be entered by women, they have to see the Image from a platform. The scenery is probably more attractive than the architecture.

SETSE BEACH
A beach 2 hours drive South from Mawlamyaing. For details, please see under “Beaches"
