Maung Ma Kan Beach
Due to the thriving number of ins and outs visitors to Maung Ma Kan Beach in Longlon Township, Tanintharyi Region, there will be no permit for retail shops at the shore, per source of Dawei Tourism Development Association.
The shops which are at the shore are to be demolished within this month and the new shop construction is to set at 50 feet away from the bungalows.
“More foreigners than locals visit the beach. They come here through Dawei deep sea port and later transportation will be better. We carry upgrade process and so more and more foreign heads will tour here,” said a responsible person from Dawei Tourism Development Association.
The Hotels and Tourism Ministry allotted that to construct hotels, shops, resort at least 50 metres far from beach where tide comes most, not to be higher 30 feet from shore, not to build fences to prevent the beach view, not to use sand from beach in construction and knock down rock at the beach, to build road to the shore between hotel buildings.
Most Thai come to Maung Ma Kan Beach from Dawei deep sea port. Some arrive from Thai directly and some are from Yangon. Yangon-Dawei road section is smooth and visitors thrown with home and abroad.
