Peaceful place with interesting people. Seeing the long neck people up close is quite amazing. The village appears to revolve around selling nick-nacks and woven fabrics but they were not pushy with selling so made that experience palatable. Worth the visit if you're in the...More

Stopped here on our drive from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai. 300 baht each to enter, then you walk along a path that would be a nice hike if you didn't feel like you were walking through a Human zoo and giftshop. Uncomfortable. Nothing interesting...More

We were visiting this small village and the long neck women was very friendly. They show us that they have made (handcrafted) but they didn’t beg us to buy anything. But we bought some of the things that they have made. Really beautiful.
