The Palaung

User Rating:  / 0
Poor    Best    

This Palaung village was geared to tourism and doing a good job of it. We stopped here for lunch and met an arriving bus load of Italians as we were leaving. The Palaung are called Bulang in China.

They are closely related to the Wa people that live on the border between Myanmar and southern Yunnan. The open porch where we were having lunch was soon surrounded by these girls offering very well crafted souvenirs. Lunch and trinkets for tourists were only marginal sources of revenue. This prosperous village had their own pickup truck on which they can be seen loading a squealing pig going to market. The kids as usual were darlings. These Palaung are also recent refugees from Myanmar, notice how some of them are still wearing longyis.
