Thorn-trip from Thailand to Myanmar by land
When you want to take a bus from the Myanmar frontier to Mandalay, why not Mae Sot/Myawady? Now there are frequent busses (possibly daily) and the street is pretty good and apart from a 30 km long mountain track from just east of Myawady to Kawkareik along the best street in Myanmar (built in Thai) it is mostly shallow as far as Mandalay.
The busses also run on the Yangon-Mandalay highway, so that overall it is much quicker than the three-day drive on Kengtung-Taunggyi Highway, even if you were permitted to take this route. Electronic visas are now the way, no need to attend an embassy or Chinese consist, but both Bangkok and Chiang Mai have Myanmar Visas for all cases.
