Xeng Her (Xeeb Hawj), Chair for the 2017-18 Bangkok Hmong New Year, said it is very hard to find a place to hold Hmong New Year celebration in the city of Bangkok because there is no Hmong community. “There is no Hmong community here in Bangkok so finding a place to hold Hmong New Year Celebration is very hard because Thai authority do not allow us to do. There are Hmong who moved to the city and bought houses and live here and there are those that came here to work” said Xeng Her.
