Sittwe - The Arakan

Unloading of river boats

About 1-hour flight to Sittwe, once known as Akyab. Sittwe is the most important town in Rakhine, Myanmar's "wild west" on the Bengal gulf. Rakhine (formerly Arakan) is cut off from the rest of the country by a huge jungle-mountain range of the Arakan. This mountain range begins in the Himalayas, dives under the sea at Myanmar's coast and ends on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Sittwe is a small town . We will show you the places of interest during the afternoon - first impressions of a very unspoilt part of the country! A new, small hotel at the coast, finished in 1996, removes your fear and offers you accommodation.
