    Has anybody attempted or done this? I heard it's not a problem but a guarantee would be nice. Thanks.

    As far as I'm aware the Bangladesh/Burma border is not open to foreigners at all. I'm yet to read a report anywhere of a traveller crossing this border legally and successfully -- if you find something, please post a link as it would be pretty big news.

    maybe because of the maritime border dispute between the two countries it is not currently feasible to independently cross the borders between Myanmar and Bangladesh or Laos. But crossing in from all other neighboring countries is possible if you have a visa and other necessary documents
    found it here
