Myanmar - Southeastern Myanmar (PDF Chapter)
This is the Southeastern Myanmar chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar guide-book.
Descend into the Buddha-packed caves around sleepy Hpa-an, ascend the winding road to the sacred golden boulder perched on Mt Kyaiktiyo (Golden Rock), and visit the little-known Myeik Archipelago, perhaps Myanmar’s most dramatic intersection of water, land and sky.
- sail, cruise, snorkel and dive among the 800-odd islands of the Myeik Archipelago
- discover seemingly hidden lakes, hanging Buddhist art and a sparkling spring in the many caves around Hpa-an
- hope for the inspiration that fired Kipling to compose his most famous opening line in his poem 'Mandalay', at Mawlamyine
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Mon State, Mt Kyaiktiyo (Golden Rock), Mawlamyine & Around, Ye, Kayin State, Hpa-an & Around, Myawaddy, Tanintharyi Region, Dawei, Myeik, Myeik (Mergui) Archipelago, Kawthoung.
