Owner description: The land of the giraffe women as polish explorer Vitold De Golish called it. Lies in eastern Burma plateau Dimpled by terraced, paddy-filled valley. Here lives Padang , atribe of about 7000 membes. Legend claims that the brass rings protect the women from tiger bites. But actually the practice of waring them helps maintain individual and tribal indentity.

Unfortunately its not worth to go to the place. its close tp chiang rai, but its just a tourist rip-off. we had to pay 300 thb per person entrance fee for a market where we could see the long neck ladies.

My husband had a book from his grandmother as a child on the Karen Long Neck women so it was a great experience for him to visit this village. Given it was so close to our hotel it was just a short trip and we were only there for about an hour which is more than enough time.

This tour is a half day tour with lunch included. The visit was very interesting as you can see how the ladies get to wear the Multiple rings around their necks. The more rings they wear the most beautiful they are considered within their tribe. They let us sample the rings so we could see and feel the weight. Crafts made by them are also sold to support to their way of living. Great experience

They are now charging 500 TB just to visit the village. I understand that they are careless and poor, but in my opinion is too expensive.
