Dawei is the capital of the Tanintharyi Division and a distinctive Myanmar southern city. Formerly known as Tavoy, the city is still an authentic and untouched destination in Myanmar. Walk around the streets and find gorgeous wooden and colonial architecture that have survived. Enjoy a meal at one of its many restaurants, markets and tea shops and visit the city's main pagodas* in the religious quarter. Night Markets • Restaurants & Tea shops • Shwe Taung Zar Pagoda • Shwe Thalyaung Pagoda • Lawka Tharaphu Pagoda (Reclining Buddha) • Cashew nuts factories • Cheroot factories • Weaving factories • Tanintharyi Region Cultural Museum • Dawei Art Center *Please dress modestly (cover shoulders, knees etc) in temples and pagodas.


Maungmagan Beach is Dawei 's main recreational beach. You will find a wide range of excellent seafood restaurants that line the beach. At the end of the day sit and relax at Coconut Bar & Restaurant (11am to 10pm) on the beach. Soak up the flaming sunset with a fresh drink or a good beer and enjoy a delicious meal with your friends. The high coefficient tides allow local people enjoy playing football or riding motorbikes on sandy flats. Stay the day at the beach swimming in the waves or floating in blown up inner tubes that are for rent all along the bay. Want to go for a walk along the coast then you can head south to the famous and pretty Myaw Yit Pagoda at the very end of Maungmagan Beach. If you are an early riser, it worths a visit to Maungmagan morning market (5.30am to 8am) for fresh fishes, seafoods and vegetables. This is the opportunity to experience full immersion into the life and culture of the local people. You can also stop at a stall and try the traditional mohinga soup.


Take a ride to the peaceful and remote Panyit village. You will pass several villages until the road becomes a little rough. However as you drive through the scenic hills, you will appreciate the view over picturesque mountain sceneries and breathtaking sea panoramas. Panyit is a quiet and welcoming little remote village surrounded by hills and paddy fields. The village community is undertaking several sustainable projects. Their goal is to prevent deforestation, keep the village and the surrounding areas clean and healthy. The eco-village project are developing recycling process, educational awareness programs and organic farming. Don't forget to stop to the Bamboo Handicraft Workshop and lunch at the Village Restaurant just in front. Panyit beach is a beautiful and long sandy beach. You will probably enjoy the beach on your own but since there are no shops around, bring plenty of water and snacks. At the very north of the beach, you can admire a beautiful pagoda on a golden rock. Between May and October, have a swim at the waterfall just before the village. It is very popular among local families.
