vivienvivienThe long-necked people in northern Thailand are one of the ethnic minorities on the Thai-Myanmar border. They fleeing the war in Myanmar and flooded into northern Thailand. They mainly settled near Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son. Mae Hong Son is the largest settlement of the long-necked people. Long-necked people live in tall thatched huts. Girls have been winding copper rings around their necks, wrists, knees, etc. since they were 9 years old. The appearance looks like a circle of independent copper rings, but actually a solid copper strip. Yes, the length is changed once every two years, and there is no need to lengthen it until the age of 25 or after marriage. It is said that the copper bar can weigh up to 5 kg. There are many theories about the origin of this custom. Some people say that it is because the long-necked people think that the long neck is beautiful, and some people think that it is to prevent the beasts in the forest from biting.
vivienvivienThere are a few hot spring pools with high temperature, and the smoky ones above will emit a small water column from time to time like a geyser. You can smell the strong sulphur smell of the hot springs from far away. It is definitely true hot springs. There are some local people selling eggs nearby, which reminds me of some people selling freshly boiled hot spring eggs next to the hot spring in Changbai Mountain a few years ago. Mom bought a few eggs. The seller put the eggs in a small bamboo basket and put them in the hot spring. After two or three minutes, the eggs were taken out and they were cooked. They were heart-wrenching in them and they tasted delicious. There is also a hot spring pool walking inside. The temperature of the hot spring pool is relatively low and it is for tourists to soak their feet. My mother and I also went for a dip, which was quite comfortable.
Baan Dam Museum beautifully presented the Lanna architecture. The Lanna style roofs are amazing. The black color of the houses have a mysterious effect. The collection of arts are eye catching and the images are unique, quite odd and deep. I am intrigued by the art's message. I think the artist is a genius. When visiting Chiang Rai do not forget to have a look at this museum too.
