Kyun Daw is a fishing village located on a small island on Irrawaddy River in Burma. Currently, Avalon Waterways is the only river cruise company visiting the village.
It is a comparatively well-to-do site, where the primary source of income is fishing. Catfish, as heavy as six hundred pounds, are longed for, and tourists will see women carrying baskets of fish throughout Kyun Daw. Neat wooden houses constructed on stilts line the dirty roads.
Passengers may visit the Buddhist nunnery, where they can watch the nuns blessing food donated to them. Kyun Daw has over 7,000 stupas surrounding the monastery. River cruises ordinarily include this as part of a shore excursion.
A visit to Kyun Daw also includes a stop at the village schoolhouse. There, visitors will have the chance to interact with kids from kindergarten age to 5th grade. Be prepared to spend the time laughing and singing along with the children, who will be as fascinated as you.
