Myanmar, travel guide
It is important in Myanmar to pay attention to areas that are taboo for overseas travellers. There are also many roads to remote areas (e.g. Mrauk U, Kalewa, Putao, Kyaing Tong). You may, however, be able to access these restricted locations with a specific permission that Myanmar Diaries may have.
Unless otherwise indicated, the following areas are taboo for foreigners: - Border zone Thaïlande Karen State: shut. - From east of Lake Inle to the Thai border: Tachileck, capsizing by plane: ok. - Lashhio to Muse (Chinese border): You must request permission (in advance).
- putau: You need a permission (apply well in advance). - National park: Close, sometimes it is possible to get a permission. - Arrive at Ngapali by car: open (but the street is poor, really bad). - Muchina by plane: open, no permission required, but the safety in the area is inferior.
- The Bhamo Myitchina on the road: shut down. - North Chin to the Indian border: Hakka Road Bagan falam - Ditthim - India frontier - Kalay and back to Mandalay, open, needs a temporary permission, the street is very poor, in the wet seasons impossibilit. The following areas are open to those who arrive in Myanmar on current visas:
Mogoke can be travelled to through Myanmar Economic Holdings Ltd. Burma Diaries can organise packages in northern Shan State that take Muse, Namkham, Kyu Koke and Kun Lone to Mandalay and Yangon via Lashio by air, car or rail, while travellers can use the Lwe-Je check-point to Mandalay and Yangon via Barnaw.
Travellers arriving in southern Shan State with a Thai passport may arrive in Tachilek, while travellers arriving with a Wun Pone passport may not continue their journey as Tachilek. Currently, travellers arriving via Mai Lar with a passport are not permitted to drive to Kyaing Tong.
Trips to this area may be approved in the near term.
