There are many elephant camps in Thailand. Mae Taman is not the most famous, but it is a great elephant camp. There are many cute elephants that you can meet up close.
[A day in the elephant training camp] November 15th today is a day of close contact with nature and elephants. Thinking about the experience of riding an elephant through the jungle in Nepal in November 2011, it is a bit of anticipation. Elephants are the theme that cannot be avoided in all Thai tourism. This is related to the fact that Thailand is the world's largest elephant producing country and is known as the "land of elephants". Elephants are a symbol of good fortune in the hearts of the Thai people. The elephant training camp is about 55 kilometers north of downtown Chiang Mai. It happened to be a Sunday. There were many tourists, the weather was not so good, and it was raining with clouds. We were arranged to take a bamboo raft first. This rafting is similar to Wuyishan rafting, nothing special. Drifting on a turbid river like the Yellow River, the gentle river water has no torrents and no excitement. On both sides are dense tropical rain forests. Elephants carrying tourists pass through the dense forest on one side and wades across the river to the other side of the river. On the one hand, this is the most exciting and most visible scene. We all imagined ourselves riding an elephant.
It is said that there are several elephant training camps in Chiang Mai. According to the itinerary, the lunch place is "Elephant Camp Green Garden Buffet". I was a little excited when I saw the elephant when I entered the park. I sat down when I had a seat. Later, I found that the best seat was on the other side of the right angle, close to the elephant, with good light and shadow. The elephant performance was very interesting, and there was constant laughter in the audience. The elephants here can lift a sedan chair, massage, play football and paint. The most adorable is the two-year-old elephant below, who dances and takes a photo. He must come to collect tips. Tourists don't want a bunch of sugar cane. They use their noses to take away the 20 baht from the tourists. It's a pleasure to ride an elephant through the mountains and water. The park has a dedicated person to do the filming. If the tourists are satisfied, they can pay for it. If they are not satisfied, they can don't. It is said that the frame of the photo is made of elephant's baba, which is very memorable and should not be missed. Riding the elephant is included in the itinerary of the travel agency, but you have to pay for the photos, 240 baht. Tourists will be given a separate tip for the elephant master, 20 baht per elephant, if you are not satisfied, you can not give it. However, when the group members encounter difficult masters, they will have to tip the elephant at 20 baht per tourist. There are people who do not follow the rules everywhere.
Pang elephant is the largest elephant village in northern Thailand. tourists can go through various activities to touch the love of elephants. elephant training. elephant bathing. The elephant's paintings, including the elephant's lifestyle, touch elephant closely.
Highly recommended, it's a great tour for all ages, you can ride elephants, white water rafting, elephant shows and lunch for a good price.
