The Thai - Burmese Border Gate, Mae Sai
(2.3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit The Thai - Burmese Border Gate and other attractions in Mae Sai using our Mae Sai vacation builder.

  • Sai island is considered a gate, gate of economically important North. An extensive range of products allows us to buy oodles that can make us lose at all. But be aware, because the goods are cheap means inferior quality. Some may have noticed a little one, but some of it can be negotiable as shopping fun. Leg to Myanmar to return empty-handed, hands are busy people.

  • Lively street life. By evening, there are many food stalls. Strange snacks but also phat thai. Fruit and local wine. You can see all wines from different fruits and roots tests.

  • We were not on the Burmese side. It was interesting to see how people from Myanmar, have differed in clothes etc from the Thai. We strolled through the market. Was interesting, but has on the people of Myanmar not so much by other markets differed. Overall quite interesting views to have but not an absolute must-have.
