Paradise Beach March 9, 2016. My Thai visa expired so I headed towards my new destination: Myanmar (Burma). One of the roughest border crossings that I have suffered so far, the Kanchanaburi-Dawei border crossing (Phu Nam Rom/Htee Khee). The Thai side was fine, a small mini van took me to the border, got my exit
Myanmar, also known as Burma, is a country in Southeast Asia that has been opened recently for tourists. The people of this country were victims of human rights violations during many years when the military dictatorship was installed. After the general elections of 2010, things apparently have changed in Myanmar and the future seems brighter.
