History

In the late 1500s, Thanlyin was the base of the Portuguese adventurer, Philip De Brito. Officially a trade representative from Rakhine, he established himself as a local warlord from his base at Thanlyin, and hired his forces on occasion to the Mon in their battles against the Bamar. However, in 1599 he unleased his army against Bago, which he sacked. Captured by the Burmese in 1613, he was executed by impalement, a punishment reserved for defilers of Buddhist temples. Thanlyin continued to be a major port until it was destroyed by King Alaungpaya in 1756 during the Mon revolt.

The main tourist attraction in Thanlyin is Kyaikkhauk Pagoda and Yeylel Pagoda. There is also the National Races village across the river.

TRAVEL NAYPYITAW

Naypyitaw, Myanmar’s modern, sprawling capital of grand, imposing buildings and expansive highways rises abruptly out of what was once a sleepy rural area. The scenes it provides are often those of quaint juxtapositions; an ox-drawn cart rattling down the shoulder

of an eight-lane highway while a motorcade of black government SUVs speeds past is not an unusual sight.
