Mawlamyine & Thanphyuzayat
Mawlamyine, a charming town, is the capital of Mon State, situated at the mouth of the Thanlwin River. Located 28 miles from the sea, it is the third largest city in Myanmar. Visitors to Mawlamyine are simply enchanted at the scenic beauty and its temperate climate. The atmosphere of post-colonial decay is still palpable here. A beautiful river trip from Pa-An can be done but not recommended because of the irregularity of boat schedule.
About 60 kilometres south of Mawlamyine, Thanbyuzayat is the counter part of river kui death railways maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
