Chiang Rai, Thailand: A luxury jungle retreat where you can get up close to elephants

If you want to spend some time up close and personal with elephants while in Thailand, but are concerned about ethical issues of how these majestic beasts are treated,  Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp Resort, which is a resort with a camp set in a traditional mahout village, might be what you are looking for. Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has joined together with the Royal Thai Government, and with Royal support, to set up the Thai Elephant Conservation Center and guests will be amazed to interact with these majestic beasts on a personal level and appreciate the fact that they’re so well-looked after. The service offered by the staff lives up the Anantara’s sterling reputation and the accommodations, spa treatments, and food choices are beyond compare. For a true Golden Triangle experience, don’t forget to take a dip in the pool with views overlooking Laos, Myanmar, and the Mekong River.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Anatara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp and Resort offers a Walk With Giants experience.
  • Tourist takers go on a slow meandering walk from a base camp to a river, but the punchline is they get to walk with elephants.
  • The walk is generally hot and muggy, so the elephants enjoy a refreshing bath at the end of their arduous trek.

“Anyone who has struggled to get their child out of the bath will sympathise with the mahouts watching over Bleum and Beau.”
