Image Caption: This image shows Cheduba Island (the round, offshore island ) and
Ramree Island on the rugged west coast of Burma. Cheduba Island was
part of an historical Indian trade route between Rangoon and
Chittagong, Bangladesh. Tidal inlets along this part of the coast
created a good harbor, and allowed development of the port city of
Kjaukpyu on the northern tip of Ramree I. Across the mountains
(dark, forested area along the shore), the riverbed of the Irrawaddy
River shows up as a curved line.
