  • This ethnic village helps these hilltribe immigrants earn income from tourism, handicrafts and agriculture. Eight ethnic cultures proudly show their specific living areas, their customs and artifacts. Seeing such close yet distant cultures made me realize the complexity of earth and cultural diversity- both requiring urgent preservation. The THB500 pp entry ticket seemed expensive but all the folk were welcoming and willing to be photographed. All cultures were fascinating but the Kayan, with their heavy brass ring necklaces, were astounding and proud.
  • Very interesting. A little unsettling, because main attraction is looking at people. Several other indigenous peoples. And cool to see homes, animals, and agriculture. 45 minutes by tuk tuk... 400 bhat.
  • The tour takes you trough 8 local tribes each showing their own typical dresses They sell some handmade souvenirs at cheap prices
  • Entrance fee is quite high, but I think it is worth visiting.
  • Great cultural village with all peoples present and in full cultural attire, bring some cash for locally produced items, support these guys. They are happy to pose for photos and talk with you also

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
