People & Costume

While passing by a remote village close to Myanmar borders, we were fortunate enough to witness a festival. Nearby villagers, young and old, came together to celebrate. Each adorning their best costume which were distinct from one another. The festival had plenty of interesting shows, games and food. Another well known cultural village we visited was the Kayan Lahwi Tribe (aka long neck tribe) where women wears brass rings on their neck. Girls as young as 5 years old starts wearing the rings. The ring effectively pushes down their shoulders, creating a longer neck.
