    I just found out that there is a hilltribe festival on 7th & 8th January at Huai Nam Yen, near Chiang Saen. I was passing today but could not stop. It's definately on, so if you happen to be in the area tomorrow, it'll be worth a visit. It's on from 16:30 till midnight.
    There will be many different hilltribes there, with a parade and a Miss Hilltribe contest.
    I will try and get there for sure.
    If you head south out of Chiang Saen towards Chiang Khong, for about 12 klms on the 1129, then turn right at Ko Pa Kham (where there are a couple of statues of Akha people) onto the 4037 and go down there about 6klms you come into the village of Huai Nam Yen. You will see the signs on the side of the road on the way. This will be non-touristy, I dont expect to see many farangs.
    Sorry, for the late notice, I only found out today.
