Transcon: Myanmar Crossing Done! Into Thailand
— Transcon — 1 min read
We made it! We rode across Myanmar from India to Thailand on Royal Enfields :D Super happy and main objective of this journey accomplished. Now everything else is a bonus.
From Hpa'an, the road was really bad with massive potholes but good fun on our bikes. We had some electrical issues on Noel's bikes and my luggage carrier cracked again, which was fixed at a nearby welder. We got to the border town of Myawaddy on the Myanmar side and it was such a relaxed border crossing. We exited from Myanmar, then came back for lunch on the riverside looking across at Thailand. Then it was time to bid farewell to our guide, driver and rest of the crew that's been with us all through Myanmar. Great bunch to travel with but I was ready to feel like an independent traveler again.
On the bridge we had to switch sides and now we're driving on the left once again in Thailand. Another easy crossing and within 20 minutes, we were in Thailand. Met a friend, Chris, who lives here and is going to ride with us for the next few days and in the evening, there was a local house party. Quite a change to the night life from the past ten days in Myanmar...
