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. Locals' primary source of income is fishing. Catfish (as heavy as 270 kg) are recorded, and tourists can see local women carrying baskets of fish throughout Kyun Daw, along with traditional houses constructed on wooden poles along the roads.
Cruise tourists also visit the Buddhist nunnery, where nuns bless the food donated to them. Kyun Daw has over 7,000 stupas (mound-like religious buildings used for meditation) surrounding the convent. River cruises ordinarily include the monastery as shore excursion option. A visit to Kyun Daw also includes a stop at the village schoolhouse. There, tourists can interact with local kids (from kindergarten age to 5th grade).
