All reviews hill tribe long neck tribe beautiful scarves interesting visit taking photos their lives chang mai handicrafts villagers culture government yao necklace homes costumes population protection
It was interesting to see 6 tribes in the same area, although some foreign consider this "attraction" as not acceptable, as 6 groups of the main Thai tribes have been put in a same Village, but the experience was very positive as you are able...More
This government sponsored village gives you the chance to see several different tribes in their individual costumes demonstrating their skills. There are stalls where their fine work can be admired and purchases made. You can also see the crops that they grow to feed themselves....More
Short of traveling north of Chiang Rai to see the hillside tribes people, this is next best. The Chiang Mai version is a showcase village with huts and "pavilions" of several of the tribes. We get to see the women weave, and the men carve...More
Karen village. It was a stop on our Golden Triangle tour. Just 20 minutes to visit this small village. Long neck tribe. You can help them buying their things. Ask them with an smile if you can take a picture. You can see their eyes,...More

Cheu Leng: Your itinerary sounds fine, except that rather than seeing "some interesting wat" on the way back to Chiang Mai, I would add the "White Temple" into your itinerary. It will be one of the most spectacular temples/wats you will see on your trip of Thailand. It is about 15 minutes south of Chiang Rai. You also might want to look at the FAQ section in the upper right hand corner of the Chiang Rai forum page and click on the link to "My Top 30 List," which is a list of my 30 most...More

Hi Yes to much. Where your issue is Chiang Rai. IMO you do not have time.You will need to leave very early get back very late. Firstly, if you are on a very limited number of days, you are better to fly say to CR , then take the bus over to CM. Day one, as you get in at 7.45, are you coming in by train or Bus.I know you are not on the Thai air or Bangkok Air. flights. if you can leave your bags at the Hotel. Have you booked any where.Then you have the day. Day two is fine I have done the...More
