Please travel gently in Htay Kho

Htay Kho village is not a tourist village. The people are farmers, who still live a very traditional life, quite removed from the rest of the world. They offer simple tourism service in order to share their unique culture with visitors and to earn useful additional income.

At the moment, the people of Htay Kho are new to tourism. Services may be slow, and not perfect. Please be patient and encouraging to the local people. This will help them to gain experience and gradually improve their skills in welcoming visitors. Please listen to your local guide, and follow their advice about how to travel respectfully in the village. As a rule, visitors should keep shoulders covered and avoid short or revealing clothing.

Also, please try to make friends with people before taking photos. We recommend to ask questions and show interest in your hosts and their way of life. Villagers may ask you about your family, work, or home country. Your guides will help you to translate.
