Mae Sai is the northernmost district of Chiang Rai and indeed Thailand. The town of Mae Sai is a major border crossing between Thailand and Burma.
We were able to see the border, tantalisingly close, just a five minute walk across a bridge! As it was, here’s the nearest we got to the enigmatic country of Myanmar.
Of course, there were also markets to be explored, but we only had a very short time before we headed off again, so here’s a whistlestop tour!
I am always intrigued by the boxes, bags and packets of dried seeds, mushrooms and other exotic edibles.
There’s always an elephant somewhere!
As well as vendors carrying goods . . .
And here’s a few more stall holders. Some looking happier than others
