We're planning on spending three weeks in Burma...iderally ten days mainland (Yangon, Mandalay...) and ten days island hopping. We're getting the impression that it's still early, in terms of tourist infrastructure, to do some proper island hopping. Is it possible at all? Had a look at the Mergui archipelago...looks fabulous but the only accommodation available on the main island is the Myanmar Andaman Resort which is very expensive and we have also read that do-it-yourself island hopping on private fishing boats is still not possible.
Would appreciate any tips!
