Thai police are investigating an incident in which 18 Chinese men sneak across the Mekong River by boat. 

 

They were found sitting and waiting at the "Thai Kitchen" restaurant on the Thai side from Laos. 

 

None of the men had passports and they reportedly told investigators they hadn't brought them. They all had their luggage with them.

 

An official told 77khaoded that all borders remained closed and that people were trying to enter Thailand from the Golden Triangle economic zone in Laos.

They will all be deported,

 

Locals fear the transmission of coronavirus from such events though none of the detainees had a fever and all were wearing masks.

A very empty area (Thai Kitchen)  A lot of Long Tail boats a few kilometers to the North at the Golden Triangle.  The Long Tails ferry tourists across the MaeKong to the Lao trading market. No visa required.  Between the Thai Kitchen and the Golden Triangle on the Lao side are the Chinese/Lao Casino's

Some tell me in the dry season the Mekong is dry enough in places to walk across because of the China dams upstream holding the water back.
