I need up to date crossing info on Tachileik/Mae Sai

Posted by AngusW on 14/4/2012 at 20:09

Hi there, I'm planning a trip to Burma in June, and I'd like to fly from Heho to Tachileik and cross overland from there. From the information I can find, I'm told that you need to get an exit permit from the MTT in Yangon before you can exit overland. Does anyone have up to date information on this crossing? Any insight would be hugely appreciated Cheers, Angus ...

15 Day extension cost?

Posted by CrankyCarrot on 21/3/2012 at 03:16

Hi, I did search around a bit first on this to no avail, so please be gentle. It's substantially cheaper for me to book a flight home from Phuket to Sydney (by hundreds of buckaroos) if I go about a week after my current tourist visa is up. So I'm thinking of buying the cheap ticket home that falls outside my visa date, then doing an overland run to Penang and back to get the extra time needed to make it. Can I literally just cross the border and turn around and go back/get stamped in to ...

Proof of Onward Travel in Thailand

Posted by stumac10 on 20/3/2012 at 06:19

I know this topic has been covered quite a bit so I appologize in advance. I have a return flight from London to Bangkok and I am just wondering even though the return date is more than 30 days after arrival (32 days) will this be sufficient proof of onward travel. If not I have a flight from Laos to Vietnam booked as well as Cambodia back into Thailand will these be sufficient. I plan on travelling from Thailand to Laos over land. Thank you. ...

I've read that you cannot enter Thailand with pornography. Is there any chance they will actually search your laptop or cellphone for all images, videos, links, etc? Of course I have porn on my laptop and none of it is illegal by US standards. Does that mean I need to delete everything prior to arrival/ Thanks so much for any help. ...

Re entering thailand and any potential problems on arrival

Hi this maybe a very common question but i cant seem to find anything; In a summary I will be flying from London (I am a UK citizen) in to Bangkok on 13th Feb, heading to Laos, then to Cambodia, then to Vietnam.
