Myanmar land travel without flying

Jump to last reply

Myanmar has been on my radar for a long time, but my husband has been anxious about the potential problems due to the political unrest in the country. To make matters worse, he keeps reading about the airline safety record and in particular the air traffic controllers whose standards are considered poor.

in contemplating a trip now, we are again considering Myanmar for next November, but my husband will only do so if we travel completely by land. There are several land crossings from Thailand (we would consider the one west of sukhothai, affording us the opportunity to first visit there.

My question - is it feasible and is it crazy to travel without flying in and out of the country and between destinations? Any thoughts?
