Tips for you

  • If you're planning to come here, do bring cash because they have beautiful weavings (blankets, tablecloths, scarves) and they're very cheap too.
    What to bring
  • The long neck ladies are at the back of the area so you need to go past the others to get to them.
    Things to do
  • The village is large and you are given a map upon entry so that you can work your way around.
  • Most of the ladies from the hilltribes are just doing their best to sell you something and they have a lot of hand made items also.

A lot of reviews on here are criticizing this place for being a human zoo, however I beg to differ. How is this that much different than the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii? This place allows you a glimpse into the different lives of the hill tribes that exist in Northern Thailand that you wouldn't be able to see otherwise. You really think that you're going to be able to visit each and every hill tribe in their real communities? They're hours away and not even close to each other. This place at least puts them all in one place so you can meet, interact, speak to and even purchase handmade goods directly from them. My bf and I enjoyed our time there learning and seeing how they live. If you're planning to go there, go there with an open mind.
