Tachileik Tours

Just across the river from Mae Sai in Thailand sits Tachileik, the main border town between Northern Thailand and Myanmar. Due to its position close to Thailand and not far from a border crossing with China, Tachileik has become a bustling, modern town with an international flare quite unlike any other place in Myanmar. 

Since tourism regulations have only recently loosened in Myanmar, Tachileik only has a few things to do, making it fun for a quick stopover. One of the most popular attractions is the labyrinthine border market popular with day trippers from Thailand. Shwedagon Paya, the town’s gilded pagoda, is also worth a look.

Practical Info

The market in Tachileik is known to sell knockoff cigarettes and products made from endangered animals. Thai customs are very strict at the border crossing, so don’t attempt to bring anything illegal back into Thailand.
