    Sawadee Thailand!

    The Bordercrossing After our guided tour through Myanmar, we crossed the border to Thailand in Mae Sai. Bringing your own car to Thailand is a pain at the moment, as authorities installed a new law on the 1st of November. Foreign vehicles are only allowed to enter with a guide and a special permit. But that rule is only enforced in certain borders, and Tachileik/Mae…
