comment Is the reciprocity fee for US citizens only charged if you arrive at Santiago International Airport?
I think this is a recent change; I'd heard lately that there is no longer a reciprocity fee charged for US citizens to enter Chile (and vice versa).

comment What documents do I need to do a visa run at Thailand/Myanmar border?
Theoretically, you could stay indefinitely, although governments tend not to like it very much. I know a couple of people who did visa runs in Chile, and immigration started giving them trouble after a few runs. Thailand, meanwhile, has been cracking down on visa runs lately. After your third time, you will probably be denied entry. Of course, crafty travelers will simply find new workarounds, but in the meantime, visa runs are a viable – if complicated and potentially only short-term – way to "extend" your tourist visa.

comment What documents do I need to do a visa run at Thailand/Myanmar border?
@CGCampbell A visa run is a very short and inexpensive international trip – usually less than 24 hours – where you leave the country where you are visiting and then return right away, renewing your tourist visa in the process. It can only be done in a few places due to cost and regulations. Thailand is famous for them, and I've heard of people doing visa runs in Chile as well (although usually you can only do a few of them before immigration starts to hassle you).

comment What documents do I need to do a visa run at Thailand/Myanmar border?
I found a local service provider and here's what they have to say about denied VoA on their website: "Please also note that you will not be stranded in Burma if you are turned down at the border as the immigration officers on duty will simply refuse to let you leave the country in Mae Sai. You will then have to come back to Chiang Mai to find an alternative solution if you wish to extend your stay in Thailand."

comment Where can I exchange Chilean Pesos in Bangkok, Thailand?
Funnily enough; I actually visited their Silom branch earlier today and asked them about it. They do not buy Chilean Pesos.
