One of the most luxurious places that you can visit and still not spend too much money is Thailand. It is a gorgeous place and a big vacation spot for many people who have always wanted to go visit it. This new jungle retreat in the country is a huge tourist attraction as you can get really close to live elephants. Chiang Rai is one of the few places in the world where you can experience these gentle giants up close and you can do it here knowing that the animals are treated well and run by compassionate conservationists who have ling championed sustainable elephant tourism.
- 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 hit 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.”
