  Port Map

Katha is situated at the northern end of Irrawaddy River. Passengers who stop there visit the large and chaotic market in the village, which is within walking distance of the site where the river cruise ship ties up. There, merchants peddle fresh fish, meats, flowers and spices, along with pottery, dishes and other sundries. Residents shop twice per day so they always use fresh ingredients for meals. Travelers can find beautiful handcrafted souvenirs at good prices. Watching locals barter is a sight not to be missed.

A call at Katha might also include a trip to the nearby elephant camp, situated around a 30-minute drive from the town. Elephants retired from teak logging, baby elephants and their nursing mothers live here, along with the "oozies" (the handlers who spend their lives with the elephants, usually from the time they're young boys).

In the 1920s (Burma was a British colony then), Katha was home to the author George Orwell. His former home is just a short drive from the main village. Katha was the setting for "Burmese Days" by Orwell, though he refers to it as fictional "Kyauktada." Tourists are not able to go inside, but it is still worth a quick tour for history or literature buffs.
