Very rewarding experience. Beautiful hand made products with typical Thai smiles. Yes, they're marginalised in Thai society so by NOT going, you are denying them any opportunities for income.
Consider the monks you've seen in Chiang Mai. Many of them are refugees from Myanmar and nobody is critical of their status!

The shops beside selling souvenir when passing by the ladies only can speak buy buy buy. The entrance fee was 500baht for adult which was quite expensive for me. Even though i know the fees are help them for the medical expenses because they are the refugees from 🇲🇲.

It’s totally So WRONG!!!!! I witnessed a Lady (Origin shall not say) demanding 2 little girls to sit properly for her to take photo!!! WTF! They are not animals, they are human being that allows tourist to view their heritage and sell some hand make crafts…….Shame on this lady to make such a demand. Worst of all, did not even purchase anything or gave the little ones any tips.

Feels totally wrong. High entrance fee (500 baht for adults and 250 for kids) and nothing to see. You are practically forced to buy something, which is broken before you get out of the "village". We were the only ones there and it felt all wrong. They can only speak English when the amount is said and the word: buy, buy, buy! Really sorry that we came here! Even the kids didn't want to stay.

The village is famous for its women, who wear brass rings around their necks, creating the appearance of a long neck.
Unfortunately, it is not a typical village, but rather a market with souvenirs.
Also the entry ticket price is 300 THB, which is definitely too expensive.
Despite this, it is still worth a visit to witness the beauty of the long-necked women.

Change the entire experience. It is the worst in tourism. Exploitation. Instead of putting people on display have a program where each tribe can discuss their culture and struggles. Have a shop to the side if tourists want to buy their crafts. It all feels wrong and I am dissapointed that I went and even worse seeing others pose with tribe members for photo ops. Support by donation not by asking them to beg.

Very interesting experience.
We were not aware of the 300 baths to pay for the entrance so it was quite upsetting.
Also we went at the sunset and we didn't have much time.
I highly recommend a guide as they barely speak English and they story and culture is so interesting and fascinating that you can't miss it

A must-see destination. The Longnecks are weavers of exceptional talent. They are gracious and beautiful.

Maybe the pandemic has made things worse. 2 friends and I were the only visitors there... felt too touristy for me but maybe on a day with more visitors it improves.
