There are two ways to interact with elephants in Thailand. But taking care of the elephants give you a more personal experience.

By 8:30am, you'll arrive at the elephant center, where you'll take elephant school. During this time, you'll learn about elephants and the center's history as well. After the lesson, you'll prepare elephant food and make vitamins for pregnant, injured, and old elephants. Only then you'll be able to take the elephants for a walk.

Between this and elephant riding, I prefer this activity. It was great being with the elephants and not on it. It is harder work (coz of preparing food and vitamins and stuff) but it was genuinely rewarding to see them run around in their natural habitat. They looked so peaceful, I just love it!
The elephants were so nice and sweet. When I gave them a walk, I immediately started playing with them. Both old and baby elephants were happy to see me. And I had no idea that their trunks were so strong. I could almost grab and hang on to them. My time here was great, and hopefully, you'll do too!
