Myanmar: Leaving Mandalay For Thailand (video)

 

WATCH: 43 Leaving Mandalay and Myanmar (Burma) For Thailand


http://www.wesaidgotravel.com/ We Said Go Travel Our scheduled 7am taxi came at 6:40am. We ate a quick breakfast and got in the shared taxi. The new toll road stole land from farms. There are no traffic lights or merge, and we went over train tracks—that could be messy. But with a fast road and no traffic, we were too early to check in, We had to sit for an hour and wait. The Air Asia flight is new out of Mandalay to Bangkok. I think they need some Air Asia signs and maybe a few shops in the empty terminal. Overall it went very smoothly.

Our 27 days and 45 movies of Myanmar have been very memorable. I wish we learned more words. The people of Myanmar are very friendly. For the most part, people wear longyi, carry a bag (because they have NO pockets!!), wear flip flops, as you are always taking your shoes off. I am so glad we came here together. Thanks for watching our movies! October 25, 2012

Air Asia just began using a different airport in Bangkok, Thailand, and we had a few issues. Five flights arrived at almost the same time so immigration took over an hour. Bus #59 was 20Baht and about one and a half hours to Koh San Road area. We are ready to eat Thai food!

This movie is from our 28 days in Myanmar (Burma) from September 28, 2012 to October 26, 2012 and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip.
