Next morning, we took a bus from Sukothai directly to the small border town of Mae Sot. It's a minivan and not very comfortable but the only option available. You can take a tuk tuk directly to the border crossing. Border crossing is smooth. There is no visa on arrival at the border crossing so make sure you have it beforehand. (if needed)

Being a country that has so recently opened its borders so recently, there can be a frustrating lack of information about the land border crossings. So when we did cross over into Myanmar from the Mae Sot-Myawaddy check post, we were feeling particularly triumphant about it all going through so smoothly. ... Until we found out that the single-lane highway that connects Myawaddy to the rest of the country runs in opposite directions on subsequent days: odd days East and even days West. Effectively reducing your chances of getting out on the same day by a dramatic 50%! It was something we hadn't even remotely conceived of, and we paid for our lack of creative imagination by having to be stuck in a dusty, sleepy border town with nothing to do for a whole day. Lesson learnt.
