    Go to Myanmar in burma?

    You can walk across the border into Myanmar from the north of Thailand. It is quite cheap to get a day visa and you just have to rock up on the day but I am pretty sure the money you pay goes straight in to the pockets of the officials. That said the border areas are over run with touts so be prepared to spend the day fending off people trying to sell you stuff you don't need. I struggle to justify putting extra money in to the pockets of the Military Junta that runs Burma so unless you can find some independent operators to support I would spend more time in Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. about 11 years ago
