Just to straighten things, there are no long neck KAREN, the people we talk about are long neck PADAUNG who immigrated some years ago from Myanmar to Thailand because of the border war on the Myanmar side, some Thai people gave them shelter and use them in a zoo like environment to attract tourists to visit them and make money with this unfortunate people, thats the whole story.


Some month ago the Thai government imposed new immigration laws and wanted to push them back into Myanmar which led to a uproar in the whole Thai province since many tourists come to have a look because of them and many Thai people make quite some money with them.


This are the facts.


If you want to know more you can download the Myanmar Panorama book in

I'd appreciate it if you could talk to each in a more civil manner than you have been doing.
