We did the regular route in Myanmar last Feb, and planned on going to Mrauk U this Feb.Tickets have been purchased ;( My friends in London informed me that it is now "off limits." I could not find that on the US travel advisory site. Can anyone verify this one way or another?
Second part of the question: If we can't enter Mrauk U, has anyone done the Mergui Archipelago on a decent boat? We are not divers, we were just thinking of an alternate to the Mrauk U - we will be going back to Ngapali. However, I was just wondering how "seedy" the boats are that go to the Mergui Archipelago? Any feedback would be appreciated.
