Activities in Kawthaung, Burma Myanmar
Aye Pyi Daw is at the top of the Kawthaung pit-lane. One can see the gold chedimus towering on a hill just south of the city. It' not Burma's most impressive sanctuary, but a walk is worthwhile, although the views over the city, the Kraburi River and the Thai hills in the far is the undoubted highpoint.
More about the Pyi Daw Aye pit. Directly in front of Kawthaung's promenade there is a small, tree-lined rock ledge with a small pit on the summit. It' s named Ober Mey Paw Kyan, if we got it right, and for a great view back over the city you can take a quick cruise here. That is the top pit and a coarse trace downwards.....
