MEALS [ L ]

Mae Salong Hilltribes (Pick up in City)
- Half Day
You will be picked up at either 08:30 or 13:30. Set off from Chiang Rai for a cultural adventure in the hills. Drive to Mae Chan district and into the highlands to visit villages inhabited by the Yao and Akha hilltribe groups. Walk around and learn about their traditional ways of living and hear about their unique customs.

Continue higher into the hills at Doi Mae Salong to the Santikhiri Kuo Min Tang village. Hear how this village was founded in the 1960s as a refugee camp for Chinese soldiers who had been expelled from Myanmar. See how, 50 years later, the residents retain the traditions of their ancestors, speaking their own language and practicing ancient beliefs. These days the Kuo Min Tang descendants are successful farmers, growing tea and other produce. They also make their own wine from the village’s fruits. Visit a local store to sample some of these items or to buy some as a souvenir from this insightful excursion.

Return down from the mountains and return to the hotel, with a better understanding of Thailand’s diverse ethnic groups.
