Hmong New Year 2019 in Pha Klang in Nan province
The Hmong are an minority hill-tribe group in North Thailand (although I think in Nan province they are actually not a minority). This year they celebrate New Year from 9 to 12 January 2019 with local Hmong customs like the throwing of a small ball between girls and boys. We were in Pha Klang the first day and unfortunately it was a dark day with even a little bit rain, so it was not as spectacular as it would normally be. The ladies are wearing silver made jewellery what can be worth a year salary nowadays. In the small village in the mountains you will still see older people wearing the traditional cloths, that are all hand made by themselves.
