"Long Neck Village" Chiang Mai Tourist Trap Tip by koolkatz_76

Chiang Mai Tourist Traps: 30 reviews and 27 photos

We signed up for the excursion to the long-neck village, wanting to get a glimpse of life of this tribe famous for their long-necked women.

However, the village itself turned out to be just a tiny market place with about 10 stalls run by these long-necked Karen tribes, which sell mainly their weavings and some small handicrafts. There were long-necked women alright, but nothing much else.

There was no guide to explain this unique culture, no insight into how they do it, and all in all, very disappointing.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
