Personal Amazing Race and Visa Scavenger Hunt to Visit Myanmar (video)

Video: Personal Amazing Race and Scavenger Visa Hunt to go to Myanmar (Burma)

We returned to Bangkok to organize our visas to go to Myanmar (Burma). We traveled by local boat (15B about 50cents) and sky-train (15B one stop) from Koh San Road to the Silom area where the Myanmar embassy is located. Getting to the embassy was easy and we had downloaded part of the forms online. Walk 100m along the same street as the embassy at the copy shop with the Yellow sign that says “Photo Copy,” the man sells all the forms for 6 Baht, he will also copy your passport for you. Bring 2 copies of your passport-sized photo, a copy of your passport, fill in both sides of the form and 810B, wait in line.

We left our hotel around 7:45am, boat around 8am and at the embassy 8:45am and we were about 25th in line for when they opened at 9am. After turning in all the forms and paying, we were able to start on the next part of our scavenger hunt. Step #2 of our personal amazing race—gathering pristine $100usd bills to use in Myanmar (Burma). We went to HSBC where we have an account but the only branch in all of Thailand now only sees corporate customers.
