Fodor's Expert Review Tachileik

Mae Sai Town/Village

Foreigners may cross the river to visit Tachileik on a one-day visa ($10) obtainable at the Burmese immigration office at the bridge. The town is a smaller version of Mae Sai, but with a vast tax-free emporium, a busy market, and three casinos packed with Thai gamblers.
