It is also possible to cross overland from China in Ruili/Muse,
but a special government permission is required.

Currently it is only possible to pass freely between Myanmar and Thailand.
You can also travel overland to India and China via Myanmar (and vice versa), but a permit for this must be obtained well in advance of travel.
In the near future it is likely we will see border crossings in and out of Bangladesh and Laos open, but at present, travel is not permitted.
What to wear
Shorts, short skirts or revealing clothing are not appropriate especially when visiting temples or any religious site. Myanmar is a conservative Buddhist culture and improper dress can be offensive.
Please dress with respect for the local culture. Lightweight,
easy to carry clothes of cotton and cool fabrics are ideal all year round.
A winter sweater or jacket and socks may be needed in the cool season when visiting upcountry especially around Inle Lake and Kalaw,
when the weather can be quite cold during the night.
Wear comfortable walking shoes which can be easily removed when required. Sandals, thongs or flip-flops (available locally) are very convenient footwear.

Like all Southeastern Asian forests, the forests of Myanmar can be divided into two categories: monsoon forest and rainforest.
Monsoon forest is dry at least three months a year, and is dominated by deciduous trees. Rainforest has a rainy season of at least nine months, and are dominated by broadleaf evergreen.
In the region north of the Tropic of Cancer, in the Himalayan region, subtropical broadleaf evergreen dominates to an elevation of 2000m, and from 2000m to 3000m, semi-deciduous broadleaf dominates, and above 3000m,
evergreen conifers and subalpine forest are the primary fauna
until the alpine scrubland.
The area from Yangon to Myitkyina is mostly monsoon forest,
while peninsular Malaysia south of Mawlamyine is primarily rainforest,
with some overlap between the two.
Along the coasts of Rakhine State and
Tanintharyi Division, tidal forests occur in estuaries, lagoons,
tidal creeks,and low islands.
These forests are host to the much-depleted
Myanmar Coast mangroves habitat of mangrove and
other trees that grow in mud and are resistant to sea water.
Forests along the beaches consist of palm trees, hibiscus, casuarinas,
and other trees resistant to storms.
