Long Neck Village, Mae Hong Son

(1/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
At Long Neck Village, get a sense of traditional village life and understand the women's practice of lengthening their necks with brass coils. Once a dying custom, the practice has become more frequent due to money it draws from tourism, regardless of the controversy. In Mae Hong, several villages open their doors to curious tourists, with the most popular being Huai Seua Thao. During your visit, expect difficulty in communicating with locals due to the language barrier; nevertheless, they are generally friendly and welcoming. The women will encourage you to purchase handicrafts like hand-woven linens, but note that bartering is frowned upon. Photographs are okay, although many tourists feel uncomfortable with the idea. Plan to see Long Neck Village and other attractions that appeal to you using our Mae Hong Son vacation route planner.

  • This attraction esp nickname proposed by all agencies.. .which fatten defiance of these tormented women. certainly there is some money for the villagers but that doesn't deserve any support these ancestral customs. It was chance that led us in this village but we did turn around immediately

  • I know it's a tradition but put soon on girls with 3 or 4 years those rings around the neck and put the girls to sell items for tourists view instead of being in school studied or played as children of the same age made me sad and pensive. But the trip also was even designed to meet our cultures soon knew he could see things that wouldn't be my taste.
