Getting a visa to Burma in Bangkok

Featured

Getting a visa to Burma in Bangkok is not as hard as you think as long as you prepare all the requirements you need beforehand. So while you’re in Bangkok, getting to Burma is possible. The requirements that you will need is your passport, a copy of your passport, and 2 colored passport photos. If you want to pick your visa on the same day of your application you also need to provide a copy of your flight itinerary, but if not it won’t be necessary.

Prices of the Myanmar Visa are 810 baht if you choose to pick it up after two days, 1035 baht for the day after your application, and 1260 baht for same day pickup. You can pickup your visa between 3:30 and 4:30pm on your specified day of pickup.

To avoid the queue in the Myanmar embassy, you better go there at around 8am as they opened at 9am.

You’ll find first hand experiences right here. But if you can’t make it is also good to be there later in the day to avoid the early rush. If you’re not sure about the location of the embassy, you can search for it in Google maps. Just search for Myanmar embassy Bangkok Thailand and it will show you the correct location but the address that was shown is incorrect. To easily get there, I suggest just take the Skytrain to either the Surasak BTS Station or Chong Nonsi. If ever you will get lost its very easy ask the locals anyway, they all know where it is.

Top 3 Travel Knives

As a knife collector, I have 3 kinds of knives that stand out. They are the folding pocket knife, tactical knife and fixed blade knife.

A folding pocket knife is a handy type of knife. It is not just like any knife but can also consist of many other useful tools. It’s a knife that can fit on your wallet or pocket and can be brought anywhere you go. It’s very handy and useful kind of knife.

A tactical knife is also known as the survival knife. It is commonly used for combat and Army training grounds. It’s not just a knife but powerful weapon too. There are many types and styles of tactical knife to use. If you’re camping, you can use this for cutting small sticks for firewood or even for self defense against a wild animal.

A fixed blade knife is also called the sheath knife. It’s a strong kind of knife that does not have loose parts or movable parts like the folding knife.

If you are not familiar with the kinds of knives, you might mistake their identities. But whatever kind of knife you are using, make sure to handle it with care and know its proper usage and storage.
