Ayutthaya, Thailand: ElephantStay; things to do


ElephantStay  74/1 M.3 Tumbol Suanpik Pra Nakhon Sri. 

Started 17 years ago, this innovative working elephant village is dedicated to conserving these animals.  The program here involves caring for and learning about elephants, and the facility has had 40 births in 10 years.  I got to feed the elephants, watch the babies playing in their bathtubs, and see mature elephants painting.

More things to see and do in Ayutthaya.

More ideas for travel adventures in California and the U.S. and around the world.

  1. Baby elephants in the bath would be cute but watching elephants paint would be amazing.
