Chiang Mai Thailand

The taxi picked us up at our hotel in Chiang Mai and we headed North for about an hour.  The two lane highway soon left behind the more populated city and passed by rundown buildings and numerous craft shops selling very similar hand woven baskets and various wood chairs, chicken cages…  Then turning off the main highway onto a winding road of serious potholes and breathtaking views.

There were five tribes in this valley where we talked with each group of women and purchased quality scarves, clutches, and purses to sell on our web site, ExoticWorldGifts.com.  We were particularly enchanted by the women and children of the long neck tribe.

Such gentle natures and friendly dispositions as they diligently worked amidst our questions and requests for photos.  Some of the children were playing, some doing chores and some being silly – just like children everywhere.
