For those with a love for travel and the discovery of cultures across the world, Thailand is an amazing country to start with. Thailand owns a rich and diverse culture. One aspect of it is the hilltribes that exist in Thailand. Learn more about them at the Hill Tribes Museum and Education Centre.
What its all about
The museum contains artefacts that belong to the hill tribes of Thailand. If you plan on venturing towards the tribal villages on your holiday, its best to visit the museum first. The museum provides education on local tribal etiquette to follow when in the tribal villages so as not to offend the villagers.
The learning process
Most of it is all about roaming the museum and reading through the inscriptions to learn more. This being said, you will begin your tour of the museum with a 20-minute slide show about the various tribes in the country.
The exhibits on display here are mostly ancient tribal equipment which is most probably in use even now. As you walk through, you will see clothing of the six main tribes in Thailand, anthropological objects, examples of bamboo usage and much more.
If you happen to be lodged at one of the Chiang Rai hotels, then you might as well inquire with your local hotel like Anantara Golden Triangle about the best places to visit for this purpose. You can also find out if which places to approach for a guided tour.
