Forums > Travel Yunnan > Xishaungbanna/Jinghong to Burma/Myanmar?

So I want to go to Burma for a week or so during Spring Festival. I'll be in Jinghong on the 15th so I'd like to enter overland.

Do I need a visa to get into Burma?

If so, where's the Burmese consulate in Kunming?

Are there buses to Burma from Banna?
I'm American.

Anything helps! Thanks!

My Chinese isn't great, but if anyone can call and ask what kinds of things they have need of (clothes, blankets, toiletries, childrens' toys) or any ways I can donate my time to help out, I'd be keen on knowing...

how did you find the route? did you talk to people who had done the ride before or just looked at maps or GPS?

frickin awesome, btw



Lovely restaurant with top-notch service and fantastic food. I love all the beets, avocados, brussels sprouts, asparagus, quinoa, and tempeh. At first glance of their new menu I was overjoyed to see so much deliciousness, then nearly passed right out from elation when I noticed most of it is vegan! In all seriousness though I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Highly highly recommend!


Best pizza in town. Slice of Heaven's a close second, and a better value on their 20kuai pizza Fridays, but overall taste and selection goes to Lost Garden, hands down. I went there for the 3rd or 4th time for the pizza night last week. We sat on their roof terrace, which has been re-done very nicely since the last time I was there. The service was reasonable, and the waitresses even spoke some English! On a previous visit I had a pumpkin soup and a baked pasta, both delicious and well-presented. Anecdote: I was there once on a cold day a couple of months ago and the foreign manager (owner?) made my friend and I hot toddies upon request, even though they're not on the menu, and they were pretty much perfect. I have nothing negative to say about this place.
