Last 10th of March was an amazing experience for me. I visited a special place with my girlfriend, the Elephant World in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This company is one of the few ones in the country that they care them and never use them as tool for work. We were excited when we booked it ! (finally we would enjoy a great day with them)
In my experience in this fabulous park, they show me what they usually do with them and absolutly they really make a good job with them. All the time they were explaining many things about how they live, their healthy problems,etc…It´s beautiful stay there and can feel the elephants near you. It was funny the time for their lunch or when we washed them in the river, I didn´t know it but they really love the water !!! Also people can go there as voluntier just for a day or for many days like a week or a month. It cost expensive but that money goes to help them and the experience will be amazing for sure.
The other face of the coin in Thailand with them is that you will see how the people use the elephants for bussines. The worst example is with people sitting over a metalic chair and that it is too heavy for the animal. Its unvaliable see how the people enjoy over them while the elephants really fee.
If you visit Thailand, exactly Chiang Mai, this is one of the thing you should spend part of your time.
This experience has meant much for me as an animal lover. For sure if some day we came back there we will try to be voluntier for a week.
