Myeik Overview

Myeik used to be called Mergui and was since the 16. century under the influence of the Kingdom of Ayuthaya. The Burmese did conquer Ayuthaya in the 18. century and Mergui did become a part of Burma until 1826 when it was conquered by the British.
It is now a town with about 200000 inhabitants and fishing the main industry.
Tourism is just in the beginning, in case the Mergui Archipelago gets opened up there will be a boom.
