All Thailand Experiences Tour to Mae Sot Thailand Photo Journal by our client Robert Craig.

Border with Burma. Burmese are allowed onto wall but not allowed to cross railings to Thailand. This young man can look back at the Burmese shack encampments, or can look along the wall at his fellow country folk, selling anything a buyer can be found for. But if he attempts to go forward, he will immediately be detained, by one of the many soldiers, as he descends into Thailand. Mae Sot is an important staging post for International Relief Workers to Burma. Many stay in our hotel. Burmese encampments. Note cottage industry "Growing Orchid Plants on tree stumps". Burmese vendors - "You don't smoke? But you may like these?" There are all-sorts on the wall, and many Thai soldiers on this side. The soldiers are heavily armed, many are young conscripts. All are pleased to chat to visitors. AMAZING FIND - a UK style wheelie bin - perhaps all ours are made in Thailand? Nearby Burmese carvings are on sale. Bedroom view from our rather Westernised Hotel.
