myeik-islands2
The Thanintharyi region is the “long tail” in southern Myanmar bordering Thailand which includes the Mergui Archipelago. It’s coastline extends over 500 miles and with some exceptions has been largely off limits to tourists. Recently, the Ministry of Development and Welfare has reported that 16 different proposals had been recieved to build resorts on various islands in Thaninthayi. At present, tourists are coming but there are minimal services available for them. For instance, there is a lack of knowledgable tour guides and also accurate maps showing attractions for foreigners arriving in Dawei, the capital.  This area has a large number of beautiful and often remote islands some of which are primed for intelligent and ecologically sensitive development. The Thaninthary region presently has a population of about 1.5 million people.
