    Every trip to Chiangmai draws me back to the Baan Tong Luang tribal village. It’s true that some people don’t like the entrance fee and commercial aspect of the village but speaking directly with the ...  more »

    Nice and relaxing places to spend during your trip in Chiang mai. The area is clean and well maintained. You can learn a little bit about their culture but mainly it's for souvenirs shopping and photo taking. Entrance fee is 500baht which can be rather high but if it's used to finance the village and give them better life, it's worth it

    It's a small village tribe. If you wanna get in, you have to pay 500Bath. There is a entrance where you get it. These people are Thai and not from the tribe because they can speak English and look very "normal" to me. I asked if the people from the tribr get the money from the entrance, they just said yes but I'm not sure if they get everything, I guess not. I think if they would get the money they would be working at the entrance office. To bad... You get a map, then you can walk through the village, you need about a hour. It's interesting to see how they live. It's impressive to see how the girls with the rings have to live, for example they can't move their heads much and always have to sit straight. The rooftops are built from branches and leaves. They also have a church and a kindergarden. All the people are selling souvenirs and bracelets because they don't get support by the government. So I think everyone should buy something to support them.

    Interesting example of the culture and traditions of the local tribes. All souvenirs are made by the people on site. It gives you an example of traditional life in Northern Thailand. Get here sooner rather than later as commercialization is starting to creep into the experience.

    A great place for human interest photography ala NatGeo shots but seems modernity and tourism has taught the tribesmen to pose for photo sessions. We can't blame as they mingle with foreigners and a church has been built in the area, giving them the chance for education.
