^^ That would make sense, wouldn't it?
Probably not then!

Prachuap Khiri Khan scrambles to upgrade Singkhon Border Pass as permanent crossing point

Prachuap Khiri Khan considers upgrade of Singkhon Border Pass into permanent crossing point to promote economic growth and tourism.

Chief provincial district officer Somphorn Patchimphet said that Prachuap Khiri Khan province has called on Thai and Myanmar authorities to endorse the Regional Border Committee's (RBC) topographic survey on the Singkhorn Pass, which will see the border pass be upgraded to a permanent crossing point to accommodate the border area's growing economy and tourism industry.

The province has submitted a proposal to the Ministry of the Interior to consider allowing Myanmar nationals visiting Prachuap Khiri Khan to stay for 14 days for those with border passes and seven days for temporary passes, and to allow the access of eight districts in the province to promote mutual trade, investment and tourism.

They have been "upgrading" it for the past three years, that rustic old market is now a characterless block of empty units populated by a few bored furniture and gem dealers.

Disappointingly farangs still cant cross there because they cant get stamped out of Thailand.

It was such a disappointment going back there, having witnessed the 'jungle' setting of the original market and some parts previously there have gone altogether. And although had previously only visited in December and January, it used to get very busy, especially on a Saturday and parking could be a problem. But when I went there two Saturdays ago, arriving at 10.00, it was pretty empty and I was able to park right in front of the new soulless market.
