    Afterwards, the guys (and their GFs) invited me to go to the city center with them, to watch some of the festivities. So we all took a taxi to Sule Pagoda. This is Central Mall, near Sule Pagoda (taken from the taxi).

    Another set of dancers


    Very graceful young ladies

    Shortly after watching this dance, I left the place as I had gotten soaked from the water sprinklers and I was worried that the stuff in my handbag (electronics and papers) would get wet.

    to be continued...

    ^Sama-sama.

    I noticed the thread bump. Unfortunately all the pix are gone, due to the Photobucket purge a few months ago. However, I hope some of the info here will still be useful.

    To get to Myanmar, I crossed the border at Mae Sot/ Myawaddy. In Mae Sot, I stayed at Baan Maitee / Maitree Guesthouse. Pre-booked via agoda. Was ~550B, with double bed, TV, toilet, A/C & simple breakfast of omelet with rice or toast + coffee. Took a taxi to the border (100B), got stamped out and crossed the Friendship bridge on foot.

    At Myawaddy, I took a shared taxi to Mawlamyine (30 usd, I think). Journey takes 4-6h. Buses weren't available at that time due to Songkran.

    Most ASEAN nationals can enter Myanmar w/o a visa (by land or air) and can stay for 14 days. Thais can enter w/o visa by air. Other nationalities can get a pre-approved e-visa.

    In other blogs that I've read, they were able to explore the border town of Myawaddy by getting a day pass. You'll have to leave your passport w/ them in exchange for the day pass and pay a small fee.
