I'm currently in Kunming and there is a Myanmar consulate here.
I'm assuming most people fly. I know there has been some quite recent trouble in the area.
But is it still possible to visit Myanmar by land from China?
Searching the Internet turns up some pages but, as always, many are out of date and/or contain conflicting information.
- Do I need a permit?
- Do I have to be part of a tour group?
A receptionist at my hostel in Kunming tells I can enter by land but doesn't know all the details. Only that you must leave by the same means of transport by which you arrive, and across the same border.
