Travel options to Ngwe Saung *other* than via bus?

Hi - I'm interested in visiting Ngwe Saung when I'm in SE Asia next month, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any viable means of getting there *aside* from taking a bus from Yangon. Are there any airports any nearer by? Is renting a car and driving oneself doable? (I'm asking since on Google Maps at least it looks like there's one main road you take between the two for most of the way.) Any advice would be much appreciated!

The only airport is at Pathein-but no airlines fly there.

There is no "rent-a-car" in Myanmar.

You can however hire a car and driver and early posts may indicate costs/times

You can go by bus or taxi with driver but between this two transportations charges quite different.More or less 120USD oneway by taxi but you can visit Traditional Umbrella Workshop and bus charge it will be less than 15USD but you need pre book on advance. The best way for your wonderful journey, zay

I would take the bus, takes about 6 hours, cost about $8. The road to Pathein is fine, after that I don't know.
