Not far from Maungmagan Beach and Myaw Yint Pagoda is the atmospheric Tha Bouk Seik morning fish market. Visitors with the energy to get up very early (or perhaps stay up all night!) can enjoy scenes of early morning life, as local fishermen arrive on the beach at around 4 am in wooden boats, from nights spent on the open sea, to unload their catches directly onto the beach. This is where the market sellers and restaurant owners come at the crack of dawn to find the freshest catch. There are a couple of very simple local tea houses to watch the world go by. This is not a place for vegans or vegetarians!
