Unfortunately no travel report in English available yet. Below the German report translated by Google Translate. Sorry for the partly weird and bizarre English! Proper translation is coming within the year 2018!
We stayed overnight in Ranong on the west coast of Thailand, from where we took a small longtail boat the next morning to Kawthoung, the southernmost point on the mainland of Myanmar. In addition to renewing our 30-day visa for Thailand, we had promised an interesting day in Myanmar, but we were just waiting for a port like any other in Southeast Asia. The trip on the road to the north was forbidden for foreigners, unfortunately, there was nothing to see in town and so we strolled only a bit through the streets and through two markets and then left at noon again by boat back to Thailand.
