Now that our time in South East Asia is over, we’ve been reflecting back. Over a whisky (or 5), we worked out our SE Asia Top 10.
Having spent 6 weeks living and working with locals in Mawlamyine, we have had a unique opportunity to explore Mon State and Karen State with local knowledge and visit many places previously untouched by tourists.
5 days is a good amount of time in the Mawlamyine/Mon State/Karen State region and you will be able to see much that is on offer without rushing around, though there will still be some choices to be made.
3 days isn’t a great deal of time to see Mawlamyine and surrounding areas, so some choices will need to be made. Day three has two suggested options, depending on your tastes.
2 days isn’t really a lot of time given the amount there is to see in the region, so our recommend 2 day Mawlamyine region itinerary is quite tightly packed!
