They sell quite an array of things here - clothes, jewellery, bags, herbs, snacks, handicrafts. Just avoid the 'diamond' sellers who try to peddle their "diamonds". There is a small museum that narrates the history of the Hmong in Thailand, a beautiful garden uphill and...More

I was excited to be going to an actual Hmong Village. The Hill Tribe people are not indigenous to Thailand; they settled here after escaping Cambodia, Laos, and Viet Nam during troubled times. I understand that they have no written alphabet. After reflecting on it,...More

These villages aren’t real, authentic Thai. They have been made for European tourists and they are government sponsored. The whole place is not a village at all. It’s a commercial tourist trap with men going round trying to see you fake diamonds. It’s ok to...More
