The long-necks being immigrants from Burma have no status in Thailand and are subsequently apparently exploited some having been moved to Pattaya as a tourist attraction in what are very poor conditions. The £10 entrance fee into what is a small compound is extortionate and I witnessed the group performing some form of tribal dance for tourists.
