Mae Sot Border Reopens After 3 Years Closure

After being closed for three years owing to the epidemic and Myanmar’s political instability, a Thailand-Myanmar border post at Mae Sot has reopened. Local leaders believe that the reopening would help revitalize businesses and tourism in the area.

Thai and Myanmar people may now cross the border between Thailand’s Tak province and Myanmar’s Myawaddy town through the first Thailand-Myanmar Friendship Bridge at the Mae Sot border crossing.

Tak Governor Somchai Kitcharoenrungroj and his Myawaddy colleague U Zaw Tin officiated at the reopening event.

The decision to restore the border at the 1st Thailand-Myanmar Friendship Bridge came after Myanmar’s military declared a truce earlier this month, along with associated peace talks.
