Dawei is growing tropical, seaside town with a reputation for being the economic hub in Thanintharyi Division's coastal region. The locals here make a living by fishing and exporting all types of sea life such as lobsters, jellyfish, and prawn. This goes without saying, the restaurants here serve up some of the most delicious and authentic seafood in the country. Unlike the commercial beaches elsewhere, the seaside village of Maungamon enjoys a calm stretch of white sand, yet to be disturbed by the modern world. Just 10 miles from the city, this beach is home to a community of fishermen who journey into the sea daily with old-fashioned, wooden boats.
