Myeik is located in Tanintharyi Region, the most southern part of the country. The town’s economy is based largely on exports of local products, such as tin, tungsten, dried fish, dried prawns, fish paste, salt, and rubber. A cultured pearl industry has also developed on some of the nearby islands, particularly Pale Kyun (Pearl Island), about 138 kilometers south of Myeik. Lampi Island, 105 kilometers by 50 kilometers with mountains topping 450 meters, boasts lovely beaches, coral reefs, clear water, and undisturbed wildlife. It has been designated a Marine National Park to preserve the environment and attract ECO tourists.
The Myeik Archipelago consists of many similar virgin islands, which typically feature white sandy beaches and are good for snorkeling and scuba diving. The water is so clear that it is enough to see the coral reefs and tropical fish, while there are also abundant lagoon caves, bird nests and waterfalls.
