Best places to go in Chiang Mai: Karen Long Neck Village (Mae Rim)
The image of women with strangely long necks wrapped in layered collars makes you both surprised and curious. That is the long-neck Karen ethnic group in Chiang Mai. In addition to natural beauty, temples, architecture, and food, this city has many unique cultural identities from local people.
The practice of making a long neck originated from Myanmar. The woman, from an early age, wore copper collars around her neck, wrists and ankles. More with every passing day, the number of collars is increasing to support her neck. They are very gentle, hospitable and willing to introduce you to their unique customs.
They are also happy to take photos with tourists as a way to promote local tourism and introduce a unique culture. Don’t forget to buy some copper bracelets, rings as gifts, but that doesn’t mean you can imitate these women!
