Although Myanmar shares its border with China, Thailand, India, Bangladesh and Laos, border-crossing tours are possible only with China and Thailand at the moment.
There are more than 3 border check points between Myanmar and Thailand but Tachilek and Measia are the only points available at the moment. Only a very short bridge of 2 minutes’ walk lies between the two border towns. After crossing the bridge, clients can proceed by land (3 hours driving) or by flight (15 minutes) to Kyaing Tong, the place of hill tribes. Or can fly to Inle Lake (50 minutes) or Yangon (2 hours by direct flights but usually there will only be transit flights via heho, Mandalay so takes about 5 hours).
Although it’s a small border town, Tachileik is very developed due to the border trade. There are many good hotels so it is possible for clients to rest safely and comfortably in Tachileik if desired.
We need one month in advance to apply the border crossing permit. Visas can be obtained at the border check point. Our guide will be there to assist clients in visa procedure.
