  • I went with mixed feelings in this village, because I really don't like "Human zoos". But our Thai friend explained to us why this human Zoo does exist. The Karen have been suppressed by the military regime in Burma and driven. In Thailand, however, they have refugee status and not allowed to work. Of course, you chickens can hold and operate some agriculture. That's enough but not to the live... So there's this sightseeing tours. Of course you get the market stalls to see mainly and I to buy souvenirs. If you want to make photos already, I think the deal just fair. We have talk with the residents thanks to our Thai friend. Do not feel it as the position of the show! They were also not sad, how other judges have written! They were very friendly and curious to know how we are etc. You have answered us on all questions we had. It has all in all we like, but we mus be aware that it is not super authentic.

  • We didn't know what to expect, our taxi just proposed to us. We thought even when visiting a village and meet them... not at all!

Who barely say hello... so we paid 35 euros to two for shopping...

Where to stay in Mae Hong Son

Though Mae Hong Son generally lacks accommodations that are anything other than functional, you can expect to find acceptable lodgings here--especially if you're a budget-conscious backpacker. These mostly come in the form of clean, no-frills rooms in guesthouses or hostels. Be prepared for prices to fluctuate, rising during the popular season (between November and January). If you're able and willing to spend a little more, explore the more upscale midrange options on the outskirts of the town center.
