Join in on the growing popularity of eco-friendly activities with a trip to the Thai Elephant Care Center north of Chiang Mai. This is home to many elderly and pregnant elephants that require special care.
Once you’ve arrived at the care centre, you will learn how to prepare food and herbs from a local guide, who will also teach you about the lives of these gentle giants. Interact with the retired elephants and give them a bath before sitting down for a delicious Thai lunch. Afterward, visit the Elephant Poo Paper Park and learn how to make paper by hand and then continue to the Siam Insect Museum where you can discover its beautiful butterfly garden and browse through its fascinating private insect and butterfly collection.
