    2010 Hmong New Year is on in Mae Khi 17-18-19 December 2009.

    On the 20th December 2009 there is a big Hmong party in "Nam Soon"? somewhere.

    Another tip off for Hmong New Year.
    Pang Ung on R1263 between Mae Na Chon & Khun Yuam, new year should be at the same time, but ending on the 20th I think it was.

    Hmong New Year 2011
    For Hmong villages in & around the Mae Sa Valley - Samoeng Should be 5-12 January 2011 approximately.

    9 January 2011 5 Hmong villages will celebrate together in Mae Sa Mai.

    8 January 2011 12 Hmong villages will celebrate in Huai Sieo? out of Hang Dong?, according my Hmong contacts.
    This will be the big one for around Chiang Mai; but I'm still trying to pinpoint the exact location of Huai Sieo. :roll:

    Attended them both & both were bigger than Ben Hur!

    Huai Sieo was in fact the place where the Go Karting took place (see Dave Early's report). Massive gathering of the troops in a great setting.

    Mae Sa Mai is another wonderfully set village. Another massive gathering:

    The 'town crier' was there to summon all to attend:

    267099=2672-IMG_2950.

    The girls were in their best hats in Royal Ascot style:

    267099=2678-IMG_3064.

    267099=2677-IMG_3066.

    267099=2676-IMG_3075.

    267099=2671-IMG_3070.

    267099=2674-IMG_3067.

    The men showed their sporting prowess:

    267099=2675-IMG_3084.

    Whilst the family proudly looked on:

    Another one. Hmong New Year is on in Huay Luk on R107 100 kms north of Chiang Mai on 25-29 Dec 2011.

    Rod, sorry no idea about Vietnam & Hmong new year, but you would expect it is around the same time too.

    David,
    H'mong New Year in VN - called NaoX-Cha here - will apparently take place around a 15 day period at the end of Jan & begining of Feb in accordance with the lunar calendar. The H'mong are mainly found in HaGiang with a scattering in Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van, Meo Vac, Xin Man & Hoang Su Phi.
    Cheers
