Mae Sot Things to Do
The area by the bridge has many market stalls, some of them concrete and some of them under an umbrella, but you will find many gems and Chinese items for sale at quite cheap prices. Cigarettes and whisky can be bought here.
Hang out by the bridge as it is quite a good place for people watching. Just relax in a cafe and watch the locals come and go, you will be amazed at what you see such as the man carrying 20 chickens on his pole. Who would have thought that there is a shortage of chickens in Myanmar...or is there? You will see plastic chairs, groceries, car parts, in fact almost anything will be transported across the bridge.
Take a truck to the bridge to Myanmar, and wander a little way past the souvenir shops to the south and you may be lucky to catch elephants at work. This is particularly interesting to observe as it is not a show especially for tourists which you can see all too often throughout the Kingdom.
