    Hello!

    It was also my dream to go overland to Burma.
    But there is no possibility from India and from Thailand told me my travelagent and also my travelling book.

    In Chiang Mai you can buy a Visit-Visa for some hours, but not to stay longer.

    You can only go to Burma by plane....
    There are flights from Bangkok to Burma... its very cheap!

    hi there, sure there is no train running, but sometimes there is a chance to go overland by bus. But only in the north. And... sometimes the borders are also closed. Also: It wont keep You from flying: the street from Kengtung to Taunggyi is closed for tourists, so You have to fly from Tachileik or Kengtung to Heho or Mandalay.

    have fun
