CityNews – Chiang Mai Provincial Office of Tourism and Sports invited medias to explore travelling tracks along borders in Wiang Haeng, Chiang Dao and Mae Ai district.

 

The five-day trip from 14th to 18th June was arranged to promote new potential tourist destinations in the Chiang Mai – Myanmar border areas and strengthen relationships with neighbouring countries, promoting the opportunity of new cross-border trading routes and investments following AEC involvement. The media tour included trips to Baan Lak Tang border, Kew Pha Wok border and Ban San Ton Du border.

 

According to Wiang Haeng District Chief Officer on 14th June, Wiang Haeng border is advantageous to create a new border crossing as it is the nearest border location to Naypyidaw, Myanmar’s current capital city. This border will also benefit anyone that travels to the Tachileik which is only 20 km away from Wiang Haeng. Currently, people must travel all the way to Mae Sai to cross the border. However, he admitted that winding mountain road to Wiang Haeng is difficult to traverse.
