Compare two different worlds with a trip to The Thai - Burmese Border Gate. The ornate gate crosses the river to connect Thailand with Myanmar. See for yourself the differences between the people, the cultures, the markets, and the temples. Explore the onsite market, where you can bargain for souvenirs. Each side of the gate has a healthy supply of tuk tuks available to take you on a tour of the border town. Sample the local dishes and see the monasteries and picturesque countryside. At night, the streets are lit up by traditional, decorative lanterns.
