From the previous reviews, it's obvious that many people expect too much from the Three Pagodas Pass. Yes, the pagodas are small; yes, there are the usual collection of tourist shops and restaurants; yes, there are a few hawkers out to make a baht or two. But, the border environment (with all the dubious cross-border trade and activity) is fun to observe, there are always amusing photo opts straddling the border, and the area is beautiful. And, who knows, if you're not careful, you might even learn a bit of history. If you're into wood products, the border shops can set you up with anything from beautiful small boxes to huge tables with solid tops made of slabs of teak a meter and a half wide and 4 meters long.
