Begin the full day exploration of Myanmar’s lesser-visited west coast with transport from the hotel along the well-paved road to Thandwe (formerly known as Sandoway). Throughout the day, become immersed in the region’s unique trades. The first encounter will be based around the weaving trade. During the ride, learn all about traditional weaving techniques and how they are utilized to produce a table mat woven from strips of bamboo.

After the weaving experience, continue the journey to Kin Mon Village, where a river boat awaits. Boat the boat and take a scenic river cruise, stopping along the way to visit fishing villages. Upon reaching the villages, learn all about their traditional fishing techniques and how they produce dried squid. The guide will provide an introduction to a few local fishermen and will offer some insight into their daily lives.
