Those who do not like places where elephants are forced to ‘perform’ for the pleasure of humans, visiting an elephant sanctuary in Chiang Rai is an excellent idea. In these sanctuaries, elephants cared for and allowed to roam freely.
Elephants in Thailand
When it comes to Thailand, elephants are so special because they are the national animals of the country. But they are also the creatures severely overused in tourism too.
In a sanctuary, you can see elephants munching on the grass with their herd and wandering here and there in their natural habitats. A beautiful sight indeed!
Volunteering and sponsoring
Every hotel in Chiang Rai highlights elephants to their tourists and this is the main reason why most travellers volunteer to help at sanctuaries sometimes. They also donate their monetary sponsorships as they love to see these animals being treated well.
Explore elephants in the night
There are places in Thailand such as Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in which you can explore the elephants in their natural habitats, even at night. This will also be a great new experience for all elephant and animal lovers out there.
