  • Description
  • The author illustrates the way of life of the Kayah (Karen) ethnic group. They once lived in the war-torn state of Karenni in Burma. Many of them now fled to Thailand. The Kayah women, who traditionally wear brass coils around their necks to enhance their beauty, have now become a tourist attraction in Thailand. The author argues that the Kayah people's way of life, especially the girls', have been exploited by tourism.
