Experience Akha Way of Life, Hloyo, Chiang Rai (2D1N)

Mae salong,Chiang Rai,Thailand
9.0 from 3 reviews

Hloyo Village is located on Doi Mae Salong in Chiang Rai. The Akha, a hill tribe, lives here in a very simple way. Their Thai might not be very fluent, so sometimes you need to use your body language and of course your heart when you speak with them!

Leave all the hustle and bustle behind and let’s relax. Staying in a traditional clay house, sipping hot coffee, watching a sunrise – doesn’t it sound right enough to leave everything and just come here!?
