The Hmong people are former inhabitants of the Yellow River Valley in China who fled their home due to Chinese expansionism. Now approximately 120,000 Hmong people live in northern Thailand. They are known for their intricate embroidery and colourful costumes. The villagers farm vegetables and fruit, most having given up opium cultivation, once their main employment. You’ll visit the White Hmong village of Khun Chang Kien near Doi Suthep (Suthep Mountain). In the village, you can buy a range of antiques, decorative ornaments and fabrics. Then you’ll drive to the temple of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, 1056 meters above sea level. Visitors to the temple climb a naga-flanked staircase of 290 steps, but those who are elderly or infirm may take a cable car to the top to enjoy the fantastic views.
