      White Thai Village
    by balhannah


Continuing on the back roads, out next stop was at a proper White Thai village.

Here, we wandered amongst their homes, meeting the people and learning about their culture.
We learnt, that the White Thai women when single, wear white clothing, and when married, wear the coloured clothing.

At this village, there was an extremely large number of PIGS! all chained, some with Piglets.
Some WERE TERRIBLY THIN, not what I am used to seeing, and heart breaking.

The Villagers here were not selling anything!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
