What To Expect

One of the places worth the journey and insight is the rural town of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. There's plenty to do that will lure you to explore the eclectic destination but a friendly visit at the Thong Sanctuary to meet elephants can't be missed. Typically, the activity starts in the morning: you will be picked up at your hotel around 8:45am-9:15 am. On your way, you will stop at a local Thai market for delicacies and lunch to bring with you at the camp. By 10:25am, you will arrive at the camp and change to traditional Karen tribe clothing for the history lesson on elephants and Thailand at 10:45am. The fun begins at 11:15am, wherein you get to personally meet the elephants and feed them bananas. After lunch, you will prepare medicine balls for the elephants – the camp regularly gives these to aid their digestion. Once they've taken up their vitamins, it's time for their mud bath! The mud session lasts for about 30 minutes starting at 1:00pm, so make sure you're ready to get down and dirty. No need to worry because you can wash off the grime and clay in the nearby river later. Your playtime with the elephants is extended at 2:00pm, where you get to cherish the countless moments with them in a free photo session. Then, it's time to say goodbye to them, change back to your clothes, and claim your free souvenir. The sanctuary has two more stops you will visit: a non-touristy waterfall at 3:30pm and a Royal Project Foundation-funded agricultural area at 3:50pm. The tour ends at 4:00pm and you will be safely brought back to your hotel at around 5:30pm.
