As the originator of this thread, can someone close this thread from any further comments? Anyone adding anything useful at this point will probably be lost if anyone needs to go through the many tit for tat "playful?" insults.

l4dybug, I don't know the price. Of course it would have to be A LOT cheaper than the comparable ones here or it would pay to bother.

tigertiger, I am always very careful when it comes to the weight of my carry-on and check-in.

All this is mute, if due to customs regulations, the fruits will be confiscated, so they can enjoy the "fruits" of my labor.

I thought I would ask this question even though, there may be an obvious answer. We are flying to Chiang Mai for a week and my wife wants to bring back a box of mangosteen. I know the fruit currently selling in the markets comes from Thailand so I thought customs might overlook this particular fruit.

I usually take the bus to Jinghong leaving from the South Bus Station.
In JH, you can catch a bus to Huay Xai Laos the next morning. I am not sure if there is a sleeper going to HX. You can probably buy the next morning bus after you arrive in JH.
I usually stay at Manytrees International Youth Hostel several nights before I take the morning bus to Laos.
You should arrive in HX in time to cross the border into Thailand. You can sleep 1 night at one of the local GHs and catch the Green Bus to CM in the morning or catch a minivan the same day at about 6PM to CM.
Hope this helps.
