Remote Lands was absolutely first rate. Everything went very smoothly and more than fulfilled our expectation.

Mawlamyine

Located in southeastern Myanmar, Mawlamyine served as the capital of British Burma from 1827 to 1852, during which time it rose to prominence as a major port. Indeed, Mawlamyine, under its colonial name of Moulmein, appeared in the works of Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell - both of whom had lived and traveled extensively in Burma.

Today, while Mawlamyine's colonial structures are in quite an advanced state of decay, the town remains a comfortable, pleasant place, with tree-lined streets overlooking the muddy waters of the Salween River. While the town primarily makes its living from tourism, sawmills, and nearby rice farms, it has gained national fame for its fantastic, fresh tropical fruits, including pungent but sickly-sweet durians, and refreshing, citrusy pomelos.
