Long Neck Village, Mae Hong Son

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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Mae Hong Son trip simple and quick.

  • You see the people do not laugh, the question is whether the people preserve their culture for the original purpose, or to trade. Visit is at most a half an hour. Each stand the same stuff. No go I say
