It was that time again (boy it rolls around quickly!) to head to the border and collect another 90 days – so under dark skies, we headed out of Bangkok on early Friday afternoon and made our way to Kanchanaburi, located near the border with Myanmar.
The process has changed slightly from last time I was there. You now need to visit a ‘border agent’, pay your 960 THB before exiting the Thai side and are then herded into a minivan for the crossing, where you wait outside a makeshift duty-free store while all the passports are taken into the ‘office’ on the Myanmar side to receive the appropriate in/out stamps before being returned. Check you have the correct passport upon return.
We headed out to the bridge, something we hadn’t done for a while. Turned out to be a wise choice, as the people watching was superb!
Got some good pics. I’ll leave the rest of the post as a ‘photo-essay’. Enjoy!
