I feel pity for the girls. They are young and beautiful, they deserve the chance to receive the education. But overall it is worth to have a look.

We visited the Karen Longneck Village at Ban Nai Soi Kayan. It was small (100 or so people supposedly living there) and was essentially a row of market stalls with each woman (men were apparently somewhere else at work, at elephant camps etc.) all selling...More

Please do not go here! If I could give a negative star I definitely would. This is a terrible example of a village. This is nothing more than exploitation and is a definite tourist trap. I would encourage you to verify with your tour guide...More

The village is a joke. 500bht to walk on a street with stalls where most of the stuff can be found somewhere else. There are few things crafted by the longneck ladies. You could think the entrance money is going towards the village but when...More

Hi. Feb/March would be slightly cheaper than January. Thailand is a country rich in culture and relatively cost effective. You will have a great time anywhere in this country and of course the shopping is always fun..
