A similar agreement amongst Asian countries including Vietnam, Laos, Brunei, Philippines, Thailand,
Cambodia and Myanmar indicates that the citizens of these countries can travel to Myanmar for 14 days

3. How To Cross India Myanmar Border

How to cross India Myanmar border

Since Myanmar opens its door to the world, more official borders are opening for travellers who wish
to do overland journeys from neighbouring countries to Myanmar. At the present, you can travel from
Myanmar to Thailand, China and India with certain border gates. Up to 2016, there are no international
border checkpoints to enter Myanmar from Laos or Bangladesh.

India Myanmar Border

In the remote north west of Myanmar, a crossing exists between Moreh (India, Manipur state) and
Tamu (Myanmar, Sagaing Division). If you want to enter or leave Myanmar here, you will need to book a
special travel package by filling out this form (you must apply at least one month in advance of your
travel date).

Although permits are required for border crossing, foreigners can now travel in these parts of Sagaing
Division (Myanmar) and Manipur State (India) freely.
The India-Myanmar border in the far north of Kachin State at Pangsau Pass is currently shut to

We offer a range of overland tours to Myanmar, but please note that we are not able to issue border
crossing permits as a stand-alone item - if you book through us you must take a guided tour for at least
part of your journey; this is mandated for tour companies by the Myanmar government and we must
always ensure the safety of our clients.

How to cross-border from Thailand to Myanmar

Thailand Myanmar Borders
If you are planning to cross the border by land, to check that there have been no closures before
commencing your journey. Also, make sure that you have the relevant visas arranged (or are eligible for
a visa exemption if crossing from Myanmar into Thailand).
These are the crossing between Thailand and Myanmar:

1. Mae Sot / Myawaddy
One of the most popular crossing points, Mae Sot is located in the Thai province of Tak. It is
well-connected by bus on the Thai side, and onward transportation when in Myanmar is also
relatively straight-forward. Mawlamyine and Yangon are easy to reach, allowing you to connect
to other parts of the country.

2. Ranong / Kawthoung

This is the most convenient crossing for people who are continuing to Myanmar from Southern
Thailand. Ideal for beach lovers, you can catch onward boats to some of Myanmar’s dazzling
beaches and islands. The boat crossing between the two countries takes around 20 minutes, and
there are regular boat services.

3. Mae Sai / Tachilek
Mae Sai is within Thailand’s province of Chiang Rai. Whilst foreign tourists can easily cross the
border into Myanmar, there are still limitations as to onward transportation.

4. Phu Nam Ron / Htee Khee
Ban Nam Phu, located in Thailand’s province of Kanchanaburi, is a remote town with a border
crossing into Myanmar. Crossing to Htee Khee, the nearest major town on the Myanmar side is
Dawei, which is about a five-hour drive from the border. Arranging onward transportation may be difficult, particularly during the rainy season.

4. Misty Munnar A Refreshing Weekend Getaway

blog img


This is not my first backpacking “planned” trip away from bustling crowded namma Bengaluru but this time the word “planned” was missing and hence the adventure was at its peak.

Priyam again turned out to be a savior in this random trip and finally we boiled down to head to Munnar on a long weekend. After deciding on the place, problem was to find a good stay at Munnar during long weekend and again Navigers team was there to help us and they booked Estate residency at Munnar for us. Accompanied by friends from last trip to hampi, Manzil and Ankit also joined the party. Just to mention, Manzil started her journey from hyderbad to Munnar via Bengaluru. (Kitni velli h ye) helped us in providing the cab at best prices and that too during peak demand season.

So the fun begins……

Started the journey on 26th early morning around 2am with AUX equipped cab, manzil carrying UNO cards, priyam with his acoustic guitar, ankit with his poker chips and obviously me to bakar around.

Singing, sleeping, playing, eating and repeating the same again, We first landed at grapevine yard Munnar on 26th morning 9am.

I have never seen before such huge quantity of free grapes, hanging at no cost, infront of my eyes and how can I miss the opportunity to grab few.

As we were approaching close to Munnar, roads seem to be unfriendly and treacherous. Every mile, there is a construction with narrow roads and blockheads.

10 hrs of seemingly smooth journey turned to 14 hrs hours of long tiring drive, but the hotel stay made our day worth spending with scenic view from my room.

Being dead hungry, we decided to munch at some goodrestaurant and that’s how we landed at forestglade.

We played poker, played guitar with songs(some mind blowing voices :P) and had some refreshing non alcoholic wine to conclude our day.

Next day, early morning.. Ahh gosh.. I still remember… it took mammoth efforts to dislodge these guys from the bed, but somehow all got ready in 1 hr and we started off our journey to Mattupetty Dam and Tea Museum.

Full road blocks due to long weekend, we decided to walk half a mile to reach matupetty dam and finally tried our hands on pedal boat.

After lunch at 3pm, driving way back to see Tea Museum and really bewildered to see the fermentation, drying and packaging happening on such a large scale at TATA tea museum.After reaching hotel at 5pm, but something keeps us buzzing and that was to see the traditional Indian martial arts show- PUNARJANI. I would say that 1 hour show was the showstopper of the trip, with some jaw dropping martial arts presentation by local boys and at the end of the show we dint miss the chance to take few clicks with skilled martial arts guys.

Again concluded our day with sumptuous dinner and with guitar being played by our music maestro priyam.

Last day we headed to Eravikulam national park, Lakkam waterfalls and finally drove back to Namma Bengaluru.

Yes, we do took munnar chips, home made chocolates for our hungry Bengaluru friends :)

6. How To Spend 5 Days In Singapore

blog img

I loved my Singapore holiday and here is the snapshot of my 5 days in Singapore

Day 1 - On our first day in Singapore, I kept it low-key and was exploring the historical parts of the city. Travelling is exhausting even if you're only in the air for a few hours. A little jet-lagged and travel-weary. We went to Singapore Art Museum. Opened in 1996, the museum houses the largest collection of modern Southeast Asia artworks. From there, it's just a short walk to the National Museum of Singapore, Singapore's oldest and largest museum and the keeper of the 11 National Treasures.


Day 2 – We could have theoretically spent our entire Singapore vacation on Sentosa Island and never run out of things to do. Sentosa - crystal blue water lapping against the white sandy beach, while coconut trees sway in the gentle breeze. Tanjong beach on Sentosa is the best spot for relaxing "peace and tranquility"on Sentosa Island. We played volley ball there. 

Silosa Beach is for the sporty types who like to play beach volleyball, and Palawan Beach is great if you want to stay close to all the action. EAT "must-have" Black Pepper Crabs. And Hainanese Chicken Rice.

I took a tram to Siloso Point and walk into Sentosa Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon. "Meet the Dolphins and Fu Seals" show. We were a little adventurous type and spent the rest of the afternoon at the MegaZip Adventure Park, where I flew above the tree canopy on a zip line. I didn’t try Sentosa CineBlast. - virtual rollercoaster. Later We went for dinner at Silk Road on Palawan Beach. The neatest thing about this contemporary restaurant is that its menu is based on the places along Marco Polo's route from North and South China to Venice, back in the 13th century. I finished by 7:30pm, as I didn’t want to miss Wings of Time.


Day 3 – We went to Marina Bay for some popular tourist attractions and  a bit leisurely. I strolled along the Waterfront Promenade, I could see iconic Marina Bay Sands. I later went to Esplanade Theatres for a show and later went through the shops of the Esplanade Mall.

We went to The Banyan Tree Gallery and it is a neat store that sells handcrafted goods made by local artisans. Afternoon We went to Singapore Flyer. Although it’s known for being the world's largest observation wheel, there is so much more to do than just soar high above the city in one of their special capsules. I did fly a na not the real one but almost real, in an awesome flight simulator and zipped around the track used by drivers for the famous Singapore GP F1 Night Race in a super-classy, super-fast sports car.

Late evening, I spent at Merlion Park when the sun is about to sat. This is the best place to take a few shots of the beautiful Marina Bay with the iconic Merlion and Marina Bay Sands in the background.

I took Boat Quay, a historical strip along Singapore River. Clarke Quay, not far away, is typically more popular among tourists, but Boat Quay has just as much to offer. Its less noisy.


Day 4 - The Chinese Garden, also known as Jurong Gardens, provides a stunning array of traditional Chinese gardens set against the architectural beauty of a 7-storey Pagoda and a gorgeous arch bridge. In the Gardens of Abundance section, one of the newest gardens, you'll marvel at the 100-year old pomegranate trees nestled among statues representing the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals.

Admission to the main garden and Bonsai garden are free. However, ticket prices for entrance to the Garden of  Abundance and Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum are $2 for Adults, $1 for Children and $5 for Adult, $3 for Children respectively.

We went for Night Safari riding a tram through the Himalayan Foothills, Indian Subcontinent, the Burmese Hillside and more before getting out and walking along the interconnected trails under the moon light. You also won't want to miss the highlight of this tour - Creatures of the Night Show.

Day 5 - Singapore is a shopping paradise, from massive malls to open-air boutiques.

I headed to Orchard Road to empty our wallet. For full, cultural experience, head to Chinatown.

Little India – Just like India

I skipped the large common-goods shopping malls and went to Yue Hwa Chinese Products Emporium, just a block away from the heart of Chinatown, selling Chinese goods ranging from traditional medicine to porcelain figures. Visit the second floor lobby for an amazing selection of Chinese tea, from the inexpensive loose-leaf teas to costly teapots.

I picked up some bak kwa (barbecued meat). Wander along the vendor-packed Pagoda, Sago and Trengganu streets , and pick up some gorgeous fine silk, jade jewellery and Singapore souvenir t-shirts.

Departure :(

7. Market On The Railway Tracks Experience Thailand Maeklong Railway Market

blog img

Unique Markets - Maeklong Railway Market of Bangkok, Thailand

Maeklong Railway Market, is a unique market that is held every day literally on the rail tracks.

Maeklong Railway Market, nicknamed as Talat Rom Hup, meaning the "umbrella pulldown market".


It is one of the largest fresh seafood markets in Thailand, and is centred on the Maeklong Railway's track.

The action at this busy market begins few minutes before the train is due to pass through the market. As soon as the siren signals the arrival of the train, the shoppers will hop off the tracks, and vendors will quickly pack their goods and prepare to close/retract their awnings from the train track as the train passes by.



Once the train is gone, its business as usual as if nothing happened. 


This is a usual event for locals since 1905; but it is an out of the world experience for all the tourists come to this market, just to witness this.  


Train schedule:

These are the times the train is scheduled to pass through the market 6:20am, 9:45am, 10:20am, 1:45pm, 2:30pm, 6:22pm.


How to reach:

This famous Maeklong Railway Market is at a distance of 82 kms from Bangkok.

9. Wanderlust Wayanad A Welcome Break

blog img

The stage was set- hectic office hours with lot of messing around with data, chaotic atmosphere, stagnant numbers with no signs of growth, ball being passed from one court to another with no resolution around, extremely scorching weather acting as on add-on and thus that called for a much needed welcome break.

2 friends (me and my friend priyam) -No planning, just a thought to explore the weekend outside Bangalore on a Friday night where there is peace in nature, poised weather, great natural ambience to stay and no laptop buzzing around. A google search of 5 minutes landed us to unanimously unravel Wayanad.

With an object oriented approach in mind to explore Wayanad and thanks to Navigers for fulfilling the procedural operational issues in terms of cab booking and a driver guide familiar to Wayanad sightseeing for 3 days. A quick google search for the best places to see in wayand resulted in finalizing few places for 2N/3D wanderlust- eddakal caves, chembra peak, pookode lake, sochipara falls, kuruvadweep and Banasura sagar dam.


With basic travel toolkit in hand- a water bottle, set of clothes, dental kit, DSLR and shades complete our itinerary for the travel. Started at 2am in the morning, seemed to be an entire different Bangalore as against what it is supposed to be in the day, reached the first kaleidoscopic spot of Wayanad at around 9am – Eddakal caves. Fascinated with the reviews on various blogs about this place, we decided to have a glimpse of this artistic naturally carved beauty. Eddakal caves contains the ancient script of homo sapiens and we decided to sneak peak into the calligraphy carved out on the rocks, got to know how during those days homo sapiens used to protect themselves from harsh weather and animal danger.

Before check-in at Hotel Haritagiri, Kalpetta(Wayanad) we already ambushed ourselves in Eddakal caves and then after 2 hours of rest on the swimming pool couches at the hotel, we made our next move to the hysterically famous peak chembra peak. Broken roads, narrow creeks, whirling winds, cab running at 20Kmph, howling sounds and sun setting slowly resulted in creeping of some fear in our minds. So we decided not to spent much time on top of the chembra peak, with quick snaps taken on the top, we decided to retrace our footsteps back to hotel.


Next morning, Our schumacher ferrari driver decided to take us to man made island- Kuruvadweep. Lying on the outskirts of wayanad, close to 70kms from kalpetta, we reached in just 45 minutes and had a quick check-in with the tickets. We enjoyed the bamboo rafting at the island and took some snaps on the dangerous slippery man made carved rocks at the island to relinquish ourselves from the scorching heat. Sochipara falls was a failure as there was no water due to absence of monsoon.

2nd Day evening, we explored pookode lake with boating for an hour on a lotus filled marshy lake and then quickly made our way to Lakiddi view point which lies on the border of wayand and Cochin. An absolute mesmerizing beauty with breathtaking moving clouds touching the feet of Lakkidi mountains

3rd Morning was actually a showstopper of the trip with mind boggling scenic experience of Banasura Sagar Dam- a must see beauty before anyone concludes the Wayanand trip. Lying on the tributary of Kabini river, this largest earthern dam in India and proudly the second largest in Asia, gives an absolute awe-inspiring jitters to the mankind. Marshy mangroves with wild fauna staring at us from other corner of the dam enthralls both of us to take a speedy boat and have a walk the talk with the beauty of Banasura sagar dam. Banasura encompasses everything- a 1 km trek to reach the top of the dam, a mammoth solar panel to shade the customers from scorching heat, a speedy boat ride to explore the jungle area of Banasura dam plus warning signs at few places sighting the view of water floating snakes to be beware of. 

I forgot to tell that yes we did try some adventurous sports activity at Banasura sagar dam like dirt motor biking, archery and shooting which concluded our Banasura trip

Finally, A much needed welcome break with memories to cherish forever concluded with a wayanad trip. A highly recommended place to take a quick break from Bangalore rusty weather and of course a place away from the office mess. Thanks to Navigers for being with us throughout ..Memories :)

10. 6 Reasons Why You Should Travel

blog img

I really like the punch line of Navigers - "World is outside home, come travel with us"
This line made me think why should one travel? And what is the reason, that some people (like me), are always eager to pack the bag and set out travelling...

After think alot, I conculded on the these 6 reasons on why one should travel

(1) Traveling helps you learn who you are
When we are at home - at our self built comfort zone. We carry on to live a systamtic life; where we know how to carry on with the daily stuff without much hazzle.
Travel puts you out on a open space, with nothing much to predict. All the challenges and opportunities travel lays at your feet help you discover who you are and what are your true potentials and desires.
Sometimes it’s only far from home that you realize you you’ve got skills you’ve never used.


(2) Life is not all about work and career goals

If you think of working every inch today and hoping to have more time when you retire - think again!!!
Life has never guaranteed us 'old age'.
Experience this gorgeous mighty planet in which you are born. Because traveling open ups to more opportunities - beyond your set goals.

(3) Chance to be a part of a story

There are numerous stories associated with every place - stories that are much more exciting than the breaking news that media covers.
Travelling lets you learn and discover about the history and current affaris of a place and gives to a chance to be part of that story.


(4) Be generous to your taste buds

There is so many types of food in the world. Traveling to different places and tasting the local food prepared by the local chefs opens up a spirit of being part of that region's culuture.
It is much more fun to experience how different people enjoy different food; than eating at a continental restauarant at your city.


(5) Cherish on what really matters

Every airline penalises the extra baggage - and thus traveling forces you to learn on how much to carry, and what is the one that is really needed and what is ‘extra’.
This is a good lesson in life too - to drop the extra baggages of life.


(6) Pamper yourself - Relax and rejuvenate

A restful vacation is just what you need to renew yourself.
