Our trip to the elephant parade was very pleasant. We arrived at 3:30 pm, which just gave us enough time to visit the museum and paint our elephants. If you are not going to draw an elephant, it may not be worth visiting because it is far from the city and the museum has only one room and a 5-minute video. When our elephant was finished, we visited how professionals color the elephant. There are elephant parades everywhere in Thailand, but this place can also visit museums, workshops and shops. Shown outside are elephants drawn by different artists and celebrities. Inside, you can color your baby elephant, or buy a replica from the collection, and 20% of the money will be used for the welfare and protection of the elephant. I bought two elephants and I like them very much. It is worth a visit here.
Incomparable Artwork Painted elephants. Before visiting, I thought all painted elephants are similar. YetI found elephants here are different from any other. Not only they are more delicately made, but their eyes contain lively emotions. These emotions indicate the effort artists took in creating them and made those elephants so unique. I regretted that I did not arrange enough time to create my own elephant. Perhaps I will do so on my next visit
I bought a hand-painted elephant as a souvenir from the Elephant Color Painting Factory, attached with a certificate of authenticity and numbered. The things sold in the factory are much more expensive than those in the ancient city of Chiang Mai, but 20% of all sales are used to support elephant protection, so I feel good when I buy them.
A small part of the profits of the elephant color painting factory is used to support the elephant’s rehabilitation plan, so I suggest to take a look if you have time. There are large indoor shops selling all kinds of elephants, and tourists can also color the elephants themselves.
