Overview

Have fun and interact with the beautiful and majestic elephants in Thailand. This is the ideal tour for animal and nature lovers. Experience the thrill and activity of a lifetime! For this half-day afternoon tour, you can spend quality time with the elephants, understanding their history and behavior. It's the perfect time to create beautiful memories with these animals.

Your driver will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel in Chiang Mai. The drive will take one and a half hours, as it is 60 kilometers away from Chiang Mai. The English speaking guide will greet you and give a short briefing before the activity starts. Spend time feeding, bathing, taking photos and playing with the elephants. At the end of the tour, you'll be given snacks and seasonal fresh fruits. Make sure to bring your hat, sunscreen and bathing suit, as the elephants can spray you with water from their trunks while bathing.

    I haven't had much experience with animals, so I was very nervous about this trip. However the elephants were very sweet and I even got someone to take a picture while I was bathing them. It was a pleasant day overall, and I'm glad I went through with my trip. I'd recommend this to anyone who needs to relax and have fun. I got a little dirty but overall I wouldn't change this experience for the world.
