    Hey Ruben

    1. Yes, but I think no guarantees at the border. If there's trouble with the rebels then it's quite likely a no go. It's been mostly open than not though. The only way to find out is to be there at the border, or check around first with travellers having just been there in Thailand I suppose. You do need a visa eventhough it's an Asean country.

    2. Mae Sai / Tachilek

    3. No longer need to.

    4. Air or land to Kengtung, air only to anywhere in the interior.

    5. Foreign tourist peak season, Nov - Feb, nice and cool, full rates for hotel and flights; local tourist season, Mar - May, hot season, up to 50% discounts on above mentioned, flights less regular; Jun - Sept, monsoon, good luck.

    Hope this helps n happy travels

    Ruben

    Ooops!!!

    4. By air or land to Kengtung from Tachilek, relatively safe but no guarantees. Then it's by air only from Kentung to anywhere in the interior.

    Sorry..
