Karen Village of the Longnecks, Chiang Rai, Thailand

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

RoamwithJohn created this beautiful drone video of a remote area of Northern Thailand which is home to a highly distinctive ethnic group called the Kayan.  Fleeing persecution in neighboring Myanmar (Burma), some of the tribe settled around a village called Karen in the province of Chiang Rai, the northernmost province of Thailand.  Female Kayan undergo various treatments and procedures to make their necks appear longer; for this reason, the people in the area are known as the Karen Longnecks.
