What You Can Expect
In present day Thailand, elephants are only used as tremendously powerful beasts of burden. But in the earlier times, they were a vital part of the King's army and played a very important role in Thai History.
On this trip you will witness the traditional techniques still used in the elephant training process. Wonder at the delicacy and preciseness of such gigantic creatures in action. For a small fee, the adventurous can also enjoy the short but unforgettable elephant ride!
On the return journey to the hotel a stop is made at the beautiful Mae Sa Waterfall, as well as one of the region's orchid farms displaying a full variety of some of Thailand's exquisite blooms.
we were picked up on time in a van with 5 other people. we loved the small group experience. the elephants were marvelous and our hour long treck on top of one in the jungle was amazing. we had the added bonus of going to the butterfly farm, and one of the other couples wanted to go to tiger kingdom, so our tour guide took us, and while we didn't get down in the cages with the tigers, my husband and I did take many pictures of others doing that. I also had the chance to have a fish pedicure., which was fun, but I don't ever need to repeat. the tour, however was fabulous, and the company and guide were excellent. we used them again the next day to go to several local places and had a wonderful time.
our tour guide made this good experience even better.
