Tachileik-Mae Sai Border to Stay Open Late for Thai-Myanmar Boxing Event

The border checkpoint at Chiang Rai's Mae Sai district will be kept open until after midnight on March 15 to accommodate people travelling to watch the Thai-Myanmar boxing tournament on that day.

The event, which will run from 3pm to midnight, will include six matches featuring famous Thai boxers, eight professional matches and five traditional boxing matches between Thai and Myanmar athletes, Mae Sai district chief Somchai Rungsakhon told a press conference last week.

The event will be held at the Yuwan Training Facility in Mae Sai Police Station.

Tickets are priced at THB500 ($16) and some of the proceeds will be used to fund related agencies’ activities, said Pakaimas Vierra, president of the Thai-Myanmar Cultural and Economic Cooperation Association.
