1. Re: Border crossing to Burma

At this time it is not possible at all for tourist to cross any border between Laos and Myanmar.(official name of the country again, the British named it Burma when they got there. Before the British it was called Myanma).

And even if there "was" one, it might already be gone. Things change rapidely in Myanmar. As far as I know, there is not even a flight-connection between the 2 countries. If so, I would advice you to get to Chiang Mai (Thailand) from Laos and fly from Chiang Mai to Mandalay (Myanmar's 2nd largest city).
