I disagree with previous reviews, this is clearly a regulated place where they are giving the chance to tribes to live from handicraft and agriculture same like their ancestors were. It keeps the heritage alive, in the middle of the mass tourism in Mae Rim...More

Good educational visit to learn about the different hill tribes. They are not pushy at all with the things they are selling. Friendly and accommodating with our request to take their photos.

We had seen advertisements in respect of 'long necked' hill tribe villagers and opted for a private tour. This location has an added bonus in that you get a snapshot of eight different hill tribes. In addition to transport, the village entry fee is, by...More

We enjoyed our visit to this village where 8 different tribes co-exist, make their own handicrafts to sell plus other clothes and souvenirs found elsewhere. Thankfully it was not crowded with tourists, although you would be hard pushed to get a bus down the narrow...More
