Mae Sot

Mae Sot the border town between Thailand and Burma is a weird place. The town, despite being in Thailand, is mostly populated by Burmese. It stands at one of the few international land crossing points, the main crossing being a heavily fortified concrete bridge across a narrow litter strewn river. The crossing is merely a symbol of official recalcitrant between the two countries. It certainly offers no control over the contraband which freely flows beneath it.
