Welcome to the northern most town in Thailand, Mae Sai. It’s a border market town where you will see hundreds of vendors and people crossing over the border to Myanmar by bus, car or foot. It cost 500 Baht or 10 USD per person, if you want to do it bring your passport. The Thai officials will hold your passport until you return to Thailand.
Here you can find everything from fruits, vegetables, clothing, antiques, toys and even homemade wine. I decided to try a few and they were delicious! If you’re hungry you can find some amazing street food all around the market.
If you decide not to cross into Myanmar, you can always take a picture at the sign marking the northern most point in Thailand. If you are in Chiang Rai it’s a one hour drive north and makes for an easy day trip. I would recommend visiting both Mae Sai and the Golden Triangle on the same day.
