The best thing we did in our 5 days in Chiang Mai was that we got to go to an elephant farm called Patara and take care of an elephant for the entire day.
My elephant’s name was Tap-Thong. She was a big girl.
To introduce ourselves to the elephants, we got to feed them bananas and sugar cane. I won’t tell you about how we checked their poop to see if they are healthy.
Then, we washed them, and then we swam with them, and then, we rode them.
The super highlight was, at the end of the day we got to meet two baby ellies, Kata and Pailin.
Here is a video of baby Kata: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt3BgvBMFn0
