Thailand to Burma.

Kawthaung . Myanmar's most southern point

Kawthaung (Burma)

Kawthaung is in the southernmost part of Myanmar, located in Tanintharyi Region. During British rule in Burma between 1824 and 1948, it was known as Victoria Point. An important trading point, many people make the 20-minute trip across the water from the Thai border town of Ranong for a visa run or a bit of sightseeing and shopping. Despite its attractive waterside setting, Kawthaung itself is not a particularly beautiful town. However, it is an interesting place to wander around, with strong Indian and Muslim influences.
