THE MYEIK ARCHIPELAGO – A PARADISE LOST IN THE ANDAMAN SEA
By Birgit Neiser
We arrive in Kawthaung deep in the south of Myanmar. Known under the British as “Victoria Point”, Kawthaung is located in the District of Tanintharyi – or Tennasserim as it was called in the colonial era. Kawthaung is the starting point for our journey of discovery into the Myeik-Archipelago (formerly the Mergui Archipelago).
