Travelling overland in Myanmar itself and crossing the border into Thailand is easier than ever before. Many of the roads in Myanmar have been resurfaced since 2011, including the road that connects the country's Shan State with Thailand.
At Experience Travel Group your local guides from either country will be coordinated and will ensure your border crossing is efficient.
The e-visa system for Myanmar and the improved facilities at the Thai border crossing at Tachileik have made it much easier to travel through the lush Golden Triangle region that connects the two countries and Laos. This crossing features in our Rivers of Myanmar and Laos holiday.
A totally different border crossing exists in the far south of the country on the shores of the Andaman Sea where, having explored Myanmar’s tropical Mergui Archipelago by boat you can cross to the Thailand coast at Ranong. This crossing is included in our Myanmar to Thailand via The Mergui Islands holiday.
Other border crossings exist and new routes are opening up all the time so we constantly have our eye on new and exciting ways to combine Myanmar and Thailand. An extensive highway is also in the pipeline to connect India, Myanmar and Thailand.
