Chiang Mai Adventure!

We have arrived at Thailand’s second largest city in the hilly north, Chiang Mai! Chiang Mai is located on the Ping river and has become and increasingly modern city. The kinds of building around here are just amazing! So different from the ones that are in Canada!

We knew we couldn’t go to Thailand without being up-close and personal with some elephants so here in Chiang Mai we went to the Mae SA Elephant Training Center! At this center we got to do so many experimental travel things that we will never forget. First we got to bath the elephants! Then we got to ride them into the jungle! It was unreal!

After our ride through the jungle we went back to base camp and the elephants put on a cute show for us! We then were transferred to a camp in Lampang and watched elephant’s paint, play musical instruments and conduct humorous stunts and skits. Calgary zoo elephants can only paint so they really need to step up there game now!

At the end the day we also go to cross something off our list and go on a bamboo raft ride! We didn’t sink! What an experiential day!

That was out day bloggers! Keep in tune! We are still on the go!
