Lahu Village is a small hill tribe community that allows visitors entry so that they can learn about the traditional Thai way of life.
While visiting Lahu Village, you will head out into the lush green mountains and see houses built out of wood and bamboo, with chickens and pigs roaming around and plenty of smiling faces to greet you.
