This was a very interesting market, more fruit and vegetables than crafts. Easy to get to if you have your own transport. Public transport is a bit tricky as there is no direct service.

If you wish you view all the local merchandise from both Myanmar and Thailand, or even those imported from China, stop by this market. There are hill tribe crafts as well as cheap eletronics, cosmetics, leather products, simple repair tools and more.

Driving to or from Mae Sot through the mountain just stop and visit the Hilltribe Market. Look at the beautiful fruits and vegetables and enjoin all the people who work there of who visit the market. I loved it.
