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. Arrange to visit The Thai - Burmese Border Gate and other attractions in Mae Sai using our Mae Sai vacation builder.
