  Welcome to Tachilek, Burma!
by BorderHopper

Crossing the border from Mae Sai, Thailand to the Burmese town of Tachilek in Myanmar is very easy. Just be careful not to get suckered in by the touts.Those touts are waiting for you and there isn't much to see...but at least you'll get that Myanmar stamp for your passport!

Unique Suggestions: Don't expect to see the real Myanmar.....hey, you are getting off cheap and you can at least say you've been to Burma.

Fun Alternatives: Disneyland, Ho Chi Minh City Municiple Water Park, Tijuana,etc.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
