Photographer's Note

There is very little traffic on the new road to Wang Kelian, an almost forgotten Thai-Malaysian border crossing. Every Sunday the locals from both side of the border meet at the not so ordinary border market. There is no customs nor immigration checks, as long as you just visit the border market along the road

However there is more, there is the almost not from tourism touched Wang Kelian state park, which is shared between the two countries. It is a real heaven for nature lovers. Covering 1,000ha. this limestone forest reserve is very rich in fauna, such as birds, mammals and reptiles. Moreover the Wang Kelian State Park has a challenging jungle trek from the camping area that leads to the interesting Wang Burma cave system, among them the Gua Kelam.
