Chiang Rai Tourist Traps: 10 reviews and 16 photos
ON the tour I did, was included a visit to the Akha & Yao tribes, something I was looking forward too!
You head out through the open fields on the backroads to reach here, so you would expect to see a village.... but NO...........
THERE WAS NOT A VILLAGE..................
ONLY SOUVENIR STALLS, WITH THE LADIES DRESSED IN TRADITIONAL ATTIRE
............AND ALL OF THEM WANT YOU TO BUY!!
I was looking forward to seeing where they live, etc, etc, nothing like this, so that was disappointing.
In saying that, I did enjoy it though, I saw their traditional dress, their babies and what they made themselves. Also, our tour group have a good time with some of the Tribal ladies, we all had a laugh!!!!
Unique Suggestions: Have a laugh with the ladies, and buy something cheap, nothing is really expensive.*
