Hmong Hill Tribe Woman

Hmong (Meo) is the second largest group of the hill tribes who live largely around Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Tak Provinces and are often seen in the local night markets, selling their handicrafts, exquisite needlework, and tribal clothing. The women are notable for their bulky hairstyles, enhanced by hairpieces. Hmong, often seen on treks, divide themselves into the White and Blue subdivisions, based on the favored colors of their traditional costumes.
