Naypyidaw, the country's capital, is situated 220 miles (354 kilometers) east of Kyauktaw.
Don't restrict yourself to Kyauktaw, because Burma/Myanmar has an abundance cultural and scenic attractions which await the savvy traveler.
Enjoy a little local culture with a little sunshine and fresh air at Burma/Myanmar's ever-popular open-air markets. Should the weather turns nasty; don't panic, Burma/Myanmar is home to plenty of indoor history museums, art galleries and craft workshops, that will keep you busy.
If the weather is good while you are here, make the most of local water activities. Swimming and scuba diving are two local options.
There is no better approach to get the core of the place you are traveling through than tasting the food from the region. Ngapi (fermented seafood) and a thoke (salads) are just two key ingredients. Take a tip from the locals and enjoy tea leaf salad or shan-style rice (fish rice). But your meal is not really over until you have tried halawa (sticky rice, butter and coconut), a popular dessert here. If you feel like refreshment, black tea is a popular local choice.
Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Chittagong, 120 miles (193 kilometers) away.
