- +

Thaksin Shinawatra will visit the Myanmar border town of Tachilek opposite Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai on Tuesday, say his supporters. 

The fugitive former prime minister may stay in the area for four or five days, said a source in the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD).

Thaksin's itinerary will include a visit to the Tachilek Shwedagon Pagoda, which was built as a replica of the country's most famous shrine in Yangon.
