I've never been to Myanmar. I read a post here in the past 3 months about this being the best/closest border to cross from Bangkok, but could not find it. As I recall someone wrote something about a Thaivisa bus from here. Sadly I could not find the thread and I have additional questions.
My passport is USA. Do I need a Myanmar visa before I go? Or am I able to get a border pass? (refer to thread by 'hadock' posted Feb 27).
Does Myanmar have a similar Immigration stamp like Singapore and Malaysia? Or do they need to take a page to paste a new Visa sticker like Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam?
Is there a special bus or van from Bangkok that does a trip to Phu Nam Ron or is it a van/bus to Kanchanaburi, then another bus to Phu Nam Ron?
Where does one catch a bus to Phu Nam Ron?
Does one buy the minibus and to myanmar ticket before or after clearing Thai immigration?
