I went to Thailand on vacation for a couple weeks with a buddy, I got to see a good chunk of the beautiful country and eat delicious food. I also got to be an elephant owner for a day, at Patara Elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai. It was an awesome experience that I will never forget. You get to learn about elephants, how to ensure they are healthy, feed them, bath them, and ride them bareback (which is actually good for the animal). I did a bunch of research before choosing which elephant place I would visit, and this was the best one I could find. It is costly compared to others, but knowing how much they care for the animals, it's well worth it. I would look into this place if you are going to Chiang Mai. Here's a little video of my adventure, hope you enjoy.
My theory is better late than never, right? I went on an amazing trip to Thailand last year and have so many great videos from the trip. The problem? I have SO many these videos take forever to edit! I posted our Bangkok Travel Diary awhile ago, but Chiang Mai was probably my favorite place we visited in Thailand.
We got to take care of and ride elephants at the Pataca Elephant Sanctuary, which was one of the best experiences ever! We also rode around in tuk tuks, visited the famous Chiang Mai night market, had amazing Northern Thai food. AND, we were there for the infamous LANTERN FESTIVAL! UnREAL!
