    Kaladan River

    by jorgejuansanchez Updated Jun 20, 2014

    The mouth of the Kaladan River is in Sittwe (Akyab). I travelled along this river twice, to and from Mrauk-U and the journey by boat itself is wonderful (it takes each way about 6 hours). You will observe many temples on the hills, and exotic villages.
    Even if you stay in Sittwe and do not travel to Mrauk-U I strongly advise youi to make at least an excrusion to some village near Sttwe (one day journey) to enjoy it beautiful places along its shores.
    The Kaladan River is 320 kilometers long and forms the border with India (with the Indian state of Mizoram).

    Thandwe Transportation

    On the trip back from bagan to yangon, the plane made a transit at Thandwe which is famous for the nearby Ngapali beach. The airport runaway was so close to the coast that when the plane was about to land, it seemed like going to crush into the sea.
