Have to go to go ouside of Thailand

Okay so that's 1,000 baht for the reentry permit

do we also have to pay the entry fee into Burma?

Or is that some kind of no man's land?

Even with the 1000, seems to defeat any positive of the duty free

No you have to get an entry stamp, 500B.

 

It's handy if you have to cross, a visa run or showing visitors around, but as you say, you'd need to buy a lot of grog to make up the 1500baht in costs.

 

I've not seen it enforced personally but there's a 1 liter limit on what you can bring back as well.

 

There are restrictions on the amounts of alcohol and tobacco products; only the following amounts may be transported into Thailand under duty free regulations:

    * 250 grams of cigars or smoking tobacco, or 200 cigarettes
    * 1 liter of wine or liquor.

Yes, but those people on M/E Non-immi O visas, have to leave the country every 90 days anyway.

 

I wouldn't make a trip up there just for the shopping, but it's good to look around whilst you're there.
