Heading to Mae Hong Son

Lots of photo opportunities here, but most of it has to be paid for.
Two funny Hill Tribe ladies I met one morning buying bananas. I was looking for an open coffee shop and they said I could share one with them. It was so sweet & thick you could stand the spoon up in it. But it was a good laugh as they were funny ladies

The Hill Tribes

Thai hill tribes are villages of people of indigenous descent, mostly refugees that have migrated from neighbouring China, Tibet and Myanmar (Burma) over the past couple hundered years. Comprising seven major tribes: Akha, Karen (including “Long Neck”), Hmong , Yao, Lisu, Lawa, and Lahu, each have their own distinct culture, language, art and colourful style of dress. Thai hill tribes’ people make their homes in the mountainous regions of the North.

The main profession of all these thai hill tribes is farming. In fact, they have preserved their way of life with little change for over the past thousand years. This different and unique way of life has considerable appeal to travellers who would like to experience a culture different to their own.

Many people bring gifts, coloured pencils, books & clothing because they are so isolated. Today was bubbles.
