I have just recived an e-mail from the foc that it is opening up that you have to get permision from the Burma govenment with an itinery and proposed plan then off you go. Some how i think that it wont be that easy.
The only areas of concern seem to be at the Tai/ Mya border.
We are hoping to travel through about Nov 07 from Bangladesh to Tai.
Had a reply from them already, very quick and looks like being helpful. Myanmar looks like it is opening up a bit, the Tamu crossing from India is "possible" - problem is the Indian side of the border with restrictions on access to the area around Imphal, but its only a bees dick to the border from there.
The Thai crossings are open and already letting in travellers and commercial traders.
no way, acording to this source, annyone knows a alternative?
Dear Mr Riel,
Thanks for contacting us!
But, I don't think your motorcylce is feasible in Myanmar for some reasons.
- You are not likely to be permitted to drive through Imphal to Moreah (India-Myanmar border town) due to skirmishes among the ethnic tribes in the region. We succeeded in doing operation one time 4 years ago. And tried a couple of the in the year with failure by volatile Manipur State.
- you can't drive from Taungyi to Kyaington by yourself in Myanmar.
- I assume that your bike will not suitable with Myanmar bumpy road.
If you are keen to bike in Myanmar, what we can provide is rent a 200Cc bike in Yangon and ride up by yourself. Contact me again if you are interested in that.
