Tea Picking in Thailand

One of the most famous places in Thailand for tea plantations is on the hillside of Doi Mae Salong. That is where I took this picture of a Thai tea picker. It must be hard back-breaking work out in the sun all day. This tea picker told me that she gets 8 baht per kilo and that in one day she can pick about 20 kilos.

    Such a beautiful place, and so cheap! It has so much to offer. The monkeys, beautiful fresh waterfalls, and the food is as healthy as can be! It really has good things going for it. I haven’t tried the tea, but I bet its so fresh and full of flavour!
