The long neck lady village is just too expensive for what you get. Really you pay 1000 baht just to shop at their bit of a market. You pay this, then if you want a photo you have to buy something from them and minimum...More

It was part of our day tour. We paid 600 baht to enter. They were set up in the market place weaving beautiful scarves and such. Sad to see them having to wear those heavy neck rings.

Our driver stopped here and we felt obligated to have a look. For us it was not authentic just a group of stalls selling craft. Yes there were some long necked women, sort of on exhibition, we didn’t stay long.

We were in two minds to stop here, but our driver pulled up in a dirty farmyard and we were shown some traditional hill tribe houses and inevitably there were women selling handicrafts. They were dressed in traditional clothes and the guide explained what the...More

If you like to learn about new culture, I think it’s the best destination. It’s totally different with Thai culture. I feel like visiting village that preserves the ancient tradition as not much people who doing this. Don’t forget to buy souvenirs to help their...More

It’s a pretty commercial place but the Karen tribe towards the end of the village were so interesting. You can take photos with villagers from the long neck village but it’s encouraged that you buy items from their stand if you do. It costs about...More

Incredible experience visiting this tribe village. They do not actually live in this village however it is built to replicate how they live and to show the history and culture of the long neck tribe. There was many tribe members whilst I was there and...More
