Crossing the border to Thailand or India

bcp 8 years ago updated by kenguide 7 years ago 1

Does anyone have experience with entering or leaving Burma/Myanmar on the road through the border with Thailand - not just for a round trip, but connecting to the central regions.

At present, you just can legally cross at four places to Myanmar:

  • From Ranong (southern Thailand border) to Kawthaung (Burma Tanintharyi)
  • From Mae Sai (northern Thailand border) to Tachilek (Burma Shan State)  
  • From Ruili (China) to Mu Se (Burma Shan State)
  • From Morei (India border) to Tamu (Burma Chin State)
You cannot reach Myanmar by land or by sea from Bangladesh, India and Laos.
