Kawthaung District, the southernmost part of Myanmar in Taninthayi Region, has received an increasing number of tourists after the end of the wet season.
In October, more than 1,000 foreigners from various countries visited islands in Kawthaung District to observe traditional customs of local people, archaeological sites and small-scale handicraft workshops.
Among the islands, Myaukni, Thaye, Ngaman, Taya, Lanpi, Hlainegu, Nyaungwee, Migyaung and Myauktawwin islands, as well as islands No. 60, 115, 254 and 256, attract significant numbers of tourists.
Most visitors came from Thailand, and the rest are largely from the US, the UK, Australia, Romania, Canada and China.
In October alone, many Thai nationals went on day trips to the region to snorkel and scuba dive near Sayton Island, 30 nautical miles away from Kawthaung.
