Long Neck Village
This is amazing opportunity to visit Long Neck village and it is eye opening in a lot of ways. As much as it was intrigued by the idea of looking into this culture. Long Neck Village is another stop on a Thailand adventure of a lifetime.
Long Neck is well known for wearing neck rings, brass coils that are placed around the neck, appearing to lengthen it. The first golden ring neck a girl gets when she is 5 years old and then one ring neck is added until she’s 21. Long Neck women, when asked, acknowledge these ideas, and often say that their purpose for wearing the rings is cultural identity (one associated with beauty). The ring neck, once on, is seldom removed. It is usually only removed to be replaced by a new or longer ring necks. The muscles covered by the ring neck become weakened. Many women have removed the rings for medical examinations. Most women prefer to wear the rings once their clavicle has been lowered, as the area of the neck and collarbone often becomes bruised and discolored. Additionally, the collar feels like an integral part of the body after ten or more years of continuous wear.
