More on Mawlamyine
The small town of Mudon marks the half-way mark between Mawlamyine and Thanbyuzayat.
Travelfish says:

It’s the closest town to spectacular Win Sein Taw Ya but it makes a fine stop in its own right.

The traditional market is colourful and lively plus there’s a good scattering of tea shops and curry houses. The giant Buddha, lunch and a wander around the market with a visit to the Kyauktalon Taung Pagoda on the way back would make a great and easy little day or even half-day trip.

Mudon is around 30 kilometres from Mawlamyine. Expect to pay around 1,000 kyat and for it to take 40 to 60 minutes from Mawlamyine by local bus.
