Beautiful locations with locals in their traditional dress. Some can be touristy you just have to do a bit of research.

Very disappointed at the commercialism. The village was deserted as the people work.The shan village was just a series of shops all selling the same over priced tea.Nothing special to see or buy,a waste of time go to pai.

These people are self sufficient and live in their own traditional way. They are friendly and welcome visitors to the various villages. It is a long drive to reach them from Chiangmai but worth the time and expense in order to see how they live....More
