Tips for you
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.
