King of the beaches
Dawei city is located in the south-eastern part of Myanmar and it is a capital city of Tanintharyi Region. It was also a port for the Siamese Sukhothai and Ayutthaya kingdoms from the 13th to 16th centuries, and later came under the control of the British, who knew it as Tavoy. Today it is a sleepy, low-rise settlement with colonial-era shop houses. Some of the architecture in town is quite impressive, with many old wooden houses, more modest thatch-roofed bungalows and a few colonial-style brick and stucco mansions.
