I decided to stay in Mae Sot for a few days to change money, take my clothes to the laundry, pick up some items from the drugstore, confirm details about crossing the border into Myanmar, and book a few hotels in Myanmar. And as always, I wandered about the town to see if I could discover anything interesting.

There were a few Buddhist wats in Mae Sot. Also, Mr. Thant at my hotel’s office, who was from Myanmar, recommended I visit the museum of the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (Burma) based in Mae Sot, but unfortunately I was unable to locate it.

There were a number of restaurants here offering vegetarian food. My favorite place was called “Khrua 14” (Khrua means “kitchen” in Thai), where everything was vegetarian. There were also some tea shops run by Burmese immigrants, as well as a few very lively street markets.
