Rim Moei Market
The market is at the border between Thailand and Myanmar, Check Point and Friendship Bridge. This market is located on the Thai side, so it can not go from Myanmar. It takes about 10 minutes by motorbike and 20 minutes by bicycle from the center of Mae Sot.
The Rim Moei Market is a mixed Myanmar and Thailand. The price is reasonable, so when you go to Myanmar or come from Myanmar, why do not go to the market? Also, if you want to buy souvenirs from Thailand and Myanmar, we recommend that you buy it at this Rim Moei Market.

|It is located almost directly below the Thailand-Myanmar Friendship Bridge (Thailand side). As you must enter Thailand, you can not go from Myanmar. The market is full of things from Thailand and Myanmar. Also, the price is reasonable, but maybe because there are boats in the river and they exchange goods between Thailand and Myanmar, I think that these are cheap. A typical example was alcohol, and cheap beer was sold. Alcohol is expensive in Thailand than in Myanmar. The reason is that alcohol taxes are high. The liquor, LEO Beer was sold here for 20 baht (Myanmar price). As it was selling at 39 baht in the town of Mae sot, it would be possible to buy at almost half price.
Here is a Thai market, there is little waste, it is well organized, less trashes on the ground, and it has a very beautiful impression compared to Myanmar. Myanmar market is not beautiful.
| There was a restaurant at the back of the market, and I had lunch. They didn’t have an English menu, so I asked them to point out a delicious food, which the other customer was eating. Haha.
It was 40 baht, US$ 1. Although the amount of rice was small, it would be like this because the price is cheap. The taste was spicy and very delicious.
