The border is so close here. The markets quiet when the border closes at 1900. The markets are just below you. I had to give it an excellent as it is a safe place. My room was not beautiful but most clean. The linen and bed were most clean. I would step out my window and be upon a balcony four floors up where there were chairs to sit upon if you have company. The lights outside the hotel by my room shut off at 2200. I slept well here, people speak English, check-in and check-out are rapid, the price is right and there were absolutely no problems when I stayed here for four or five hundred baht. This hotel has a restaurant and such on the first floor. I will stay here if I return to Thailand ever again.
Techilek on the Burma side was most safe and their construction projects are incredible. Six hours on the main and back streets did present warm welcomes. There were three high school immediately seen and there were adults that were most proficient in English. Techilek appears to be a fine place to go and see what is going on there in the next couple of years as border runs will probably lead you to stay in Techilek for a new experience as it may be most compatible.
