Overview

Want to spend the afternoon meeting the locals of Thailand? Book this tour today, and visit the one of country's hill tribes: the Karen Long Necks.

To the Karen tribe, a woman with a long neck is a symbol of beauty. This practice of placing brass rings around girls necks, is still alive and well, and you have the opportunity to see it firsthand. The day begins at 1:30pm, as you are picked-up from your hotel in Chiang Mai. After an hour long drive, you'll get to meet the Karen tribe, as well as the Lahu, Lisu, Mhong, Yao, and Akha tribe. Once the interaction period is done, you get to visit the Orchid Butterfly Farm or the Tiger Kingdom. In the Tiger Kingdom, you'll get a chance to play with tigers or tiger cubs. The trip will last around 3-4 hours. Transportation to and from your Chiang Mai hotel is included in the package.

    It was my first time being with the women of the tribe. Those rings around their necks look heavy, but when I see them walk around and do their daily activities, it is as if the rings were as light as feathers. Not this is what I call doing everything to achieve beauty.

    The Karen Long Necks are extremely beautiful. When I was taking photos of them, I can't seem to escape their curious eyes. The brass rings around their necks looked like it hurt, but when I asked one woman she said that she's used to it that the brass rings feel natural.
