Kawthaung Harbor

 

A not very up to date Myanmar harbor

and a chaotic, busy and rotten waterfront, this is the first impression a traveler to Kawthaung get. There are four variants of people arriving here, first the locals from the islands around and the other who shuttle between Ranong and this port town.

The next are the foreigners who come in by the visa run from Thailand, they board a longtail boat cut through the Andaman Sea jump off the boat at the waterfront, rush to the immigration get a in and out visa and of they are back to Ranong.

The next group of people reaching the harbor are fishermen since this is the biggest fishing port in the south, they anchor there vessels a bit to the east of the jetty into the river estuary.

The others are vessels on a live aboard diving trip

in the Mergui Archipelago plus some foreign yachts who just come in for a great vacation trip.the Isthus od Kra which is a bit to the north, that is the shortest land distance between the Indian Ocean.
