During Cyclone Nargis (early-May 2008), Burma's military provided convoys to help refugees to Maubin. This extremely severe storm caused Burma's worst natural disaster. May 2nd's landfall sent a water surge some 40 km (25 mi) up Irrawaddy Delta. The disaster resulted in catastrophic destructions (damages estimated at over USD 10 billion) and death toll nearly 140,000 (including ~55,000 missing).

The town Maubin is protected from overflows via flood-control embankments. Its southern coastline is along Andaman Sea (eastern Indian Ocean). Fishing and rice-growing are local economy's main contributors, as well as communication and transportation services.

Among the best-known tourist attractions are Paw Taw Mu Ceti pagoda (on Toe River in the town's southern part). Shwe Phone Myint Ceti pagoda (built in late 19th-century), also the pagodas Akyawsulyanmyattonetan and Shwephonemyint.
