This is a cultural thing to do if you want to see how these 5 tribes live. While interesting it was troubling to me in that it was almost like these human beings were on display much like going to the zoo. I know it is not that way but that was just the vibe I had. All the people... More

After visiting this village which comprises of the fve tribes, I had learnt to be contented of what I had been given. Those tribes had taught me more patience with what you had got. Living on the hills & not really convenience to leave the village. Earned living by patiently focusing on the handicrafts. An eye opener to such ancient... More

I was travelling with three friends all of whom aren’t into nature or the outdoors so, for the day when we were going to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and Bhubing Palace, I had to figure out one more spot nearby to finish off the day’s tour (the flower farms, Mae Sa waterfall etc. are no-go). Thankfully, everyone agreed that... More

Jan 25 This place advertises the presence of 7 different ethnic groups from the remote villages in one place. In actuality some of the groups were moved here to be exhibited like animals in a zoo. For example, arguably the most well-known is the Karen "long-neck," or Padaung, tribe, whose women and even girls wear brass coils around their necks,... More

It's a small village tribe. If you wanna get in, you have to pay 500Bath. There is a entrance where you get it. These people are Thai and not from the tribe because they can speak English and look very "normal" to me. I asked if the people from the tribr get the money from the entrance, they just said...

Went on part of a private day tour to see the minority tribes. The entrance fee is TB500 per person. You get to see 7 different types of minority tribes. Bought some handicrafts. With a guide, you get to understand the different tribes culture.

Can get a clue of life of hill tribe people without driving all day long to different directions from Chiagmai. Best part is the longneck area. Worth wishing even through this is kind of a show room. Most people there speak Thai and just a few some English. You can go there by yourself in 45 - 69 min
