Mongla to be reopened for tourists from Thailand

21 March 2012
Tourists coming from Thailand will soon be able to travel to Mongla 
on the Sino-Burmese border through the Maesai-Tachilek checkpoint, 
according to sources close to the Mongla leadership.
Mongla is roughly 240 km from Maesai. Tourism to Mongla, also known 
as Burma’s Las Vegas, was closed following tensions generated by 
Naypyitaw’s demand that all ceasefire groups become Burma 
Army-run Border Guard Forces (BGFs) in 2009.
