Trip from Thailand to Kentung - Myanmar Message Board
It is no longer necessary to convert the US dollar to FECs upon arriving in Myanmar. US dollars, Thai baht and Burmese kyat are useful currency for Kyaing Tong. Mong La is denominated in yuan, US dollar and Thai baht. These can be left at your own peril at the Myanmar Tourist Office in Tachileik.
Telephone fees are very high in Myanmar. Kyaing Tong has no cyber cafes and no telephone boxes. The weather in Kyaing Tong and Mong La is 15-22 degrees Centigrade during the days of November-February; March-May is 28-32 degrees Centigrade; June-October is 25-28 degrees Centigrade. Because of its unspoilt surroundings and the non-tourist mountain peoples' towns, Keng Tung is a place where travelers come to.
The city is more advanced than the province capitol Keng Tung. The tourism infra structure is simple. Have you made this journey finally? I' m only planing a short journey from Bangkok to Myanmar in 1 weeks. Which is the best carrier to go inland? The best carrier is Yangon Airways, they are flying to all the touristic places you want to see in a weeks to be quite inexpensive at this season.
Savor Myanmar, sorry, please listen to my last one. Travelling independently is very simple here. You do not need a 28 days Myanmar touristic visas in advanced and you can enter Burma's Tachileik from the northern part of Thailand at Mae Sai and get either a one or two weeks entrance-pass.
Between Tahcileik and Kengtung you can take collective taxi or shuttlebuses. The Mae Sai, Mae Sai, is better value for your money than Tachileik, so if you need to spend the night at the frontier, remain on the Thai side in Mae Sai. PS--withdraw from'tours' that MTT might press to sale you as much can be done independantly, provided you have hired a locally based tour leader and your destinations on your travel schedule.
