    Great in-depth information on visa runs in Myanmar. As the country opens even more and the development pace accelerates, more people will be exploring Myanmar whether it be for visa runs or vacation. This will definitely be helpful for future travelers. Thanks.

    It’s also easy to cross into Myanmar at Myawady with a Myanmar visa. In fact, it’s now possible to use an e-visa meaning you don’t even have to visit a Myanmar embassy at all. The signs/entrances at immigration on the Myanmar side for foreigners are intended for visitors with visas, which now represent the majority of tourist visits to Myawady. Prior to the border opening for visa holders on August 28, 2013, only day visits were allowed, now overland journeys are possible in both directions.

    Accommodation in Myawady is available, but given the much better quality and availability, as well as value for money in Mae Sot you might as well stay there since the border now opens at 5.30am Thai time. After completing customs and immigration formalities on the Thai and Myanmar sides, which shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, you can quickly continue your journey into the interior of Myanmar if you wish.

    To travel beyond Myawady, you can find taxis/share taxis just after the bridge, which take around 2.5-3 hours for the journey to Hpa-an (the state capital of Kayin/Karen State) and around 3.5-4 hours to Mawlamyine (Mon State) using the new Thai built bypass road around the Dawna range that takes you past Kawkareik. From there, it’s another 90km to Hpa-an. Although there are now buses operating directly from Myawady to Yangon and even Mandalay, it’s a long haul and you’re better off stopping off along the way. In fact, there are so many things to see and do along the way just from Myawady to Yangon you’ll see a part of Myanmar that still hasn’t been that well traveled yet.
