I did It! If you're like me you spent a lot of time looking at the reviews wondering how something could have such a wide range of experience results. Is it a human zoo? Is my money really going towards the tribes? Does my breath...More

I visited here as part of a day tour, and was happy to learn more information about the Karen people and their customs. However, the actual village is kept hidden behind a large ring of stands containing souvenirs for sale. You walk through a tunnel...More

I was really hesitant to stop but glad we did. I left feeling a little sad but glad these people have a safe place to live. Tourism is about the only way these people can make money.

Yes this is a tourist trap...but interesting as all the tribes are represented. We didn’t find anyone “trying” to sell to us...and they did not charge us to take their pictures.

We actually thought about going to this village, until we did some research. Longneck women were brought across from Burma as tourist attractions years ago, the villages are replica villages. Longnecks are not even part of Thailand indigenous culture. Getting photos with these ladies is...More

After going to the hilltribe museum in Chiang Rai I discovered that these are not real villages. It is very much a human zoo of a marginalised community. Not fair on these people or thhe tourist season paying for this fake village.
