Silversea Luxury Cruises A Sittwe

Sittwe is a sprawling former British-occupied city located on the eastern coast of Myanmar and the capital of Rakhine State. Sittwe literally means “the place where wars meet” due to its storied history as a site of battle in several wars, including the First Anglo-Burmese War. Sometimes referred to as its former name Aykab, Sittwe is situated where the tidal Kaladan River meets the Bay of Bengal, and houses a number of lively markets that operate year-round. View more

Other attractions include Point (housing a look-out tower), the Shwezedi Monastery, Rakhine State Cultural Museum, and Ahkyaib-daw, a sacred Buddhist pagoda.
