The only downside we found with Mawlamyine -- nowhere's perfect -- is the poor accommodation choice. Tourism hasn't really hit the town yet so we guess there's been no need up until now: there are few tour groups, only the occasional independent traveller and a trickle of backpackers, with most current visitors being Thai neighbours crossing the border from Mae Sot. There are a couple of decent midrange spots -- indeed one is excellent -- but for budget choices you're a bit stuffed. As Mawlamyine no doubt gets more popular in the near future we can hope that some of the existing hotel stock will be upgraded and some of those lovely old villas ought to get reincarnated as ‘boutique' guesthouses. Note that due to the relative paucity of accommodation choices we have included some joints that we wouldn't perhaps recommend in other destinations with more to offer.
