Day trip from Thailand to Myanmar Mar 22, 2011
It is possible to do a day trip from Ranong, Thailand over to Kawthaung in Myanmar. The southernmost town in Myanmar was formerly known as Victoria Point. There aren't any roads there so you must take a longboat from Ranong. We noticed lots of fishermen out in the bay catching jellyfish. Kawthaung is a popular/cheap place for Thais to go shopping, our driver brought his wife along for this. The town itself is basic border town, but has a nice temple up on a hill. On the way back to Ranong, the skies opened in a downpour. We managed to stay somewhat dry in the boat by huddling under an umbrella.
