A great experience to understand & experience the simple livelihood of the Hmong people. Displaced from modern society, many of these people have to resort to sale of handicraft items to earn a living. Indeed a nice place to travel. Has a restaurant within the hill tribe village. Need to walk distances if want to view all the surroundings. Not... More

It works for a visit if you travel to see Doi Suthep temple by bike. Many shops sell cheap souvenir make this village less charming. People friendly. Nice experience.

First and foremost, I love the call of nature in this place. Secondly, the charm of the Hmong culture shows quite clearly, with them doing various activities and playing their instruments.

Tranquil place. Scenic. Good place to buy handicrafts. Good experience. Trip to Ban Hmong can be 2-3 hour extension to a day trip to the Buddhist temple at Doi Suthep

Recently, on an extended tour of Thailand with Gate 1 Travel, we spent a half day at Mae Sa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai. The elephants were absolutely amazing. I was not real tweaked when I learned we were going, but boy, did I get my mind changed! These enormous creatures were some of the smartest, most playful, and intelligent... More

The village is touristy and does not provide insight to hill people life style, however it is still an interesting place to visit. There is a beautiful garden at the top which includes a wide array of flower types and a small waterfall. Traditionally garbed hill people are ready to pose for pictures. The walk up to the garden takes... More
