Wonderful experience in the company of these wonderful animals. a bus picked us up from the hotel and, after loading other guests, took us to the elephant sanctuary. The volunteers of the center welcomed us with a sweet buffet with biscuits and drinks and told us the sad story of these giants of nature who were saved from exploitation. then the fun began! we fed them, filled them with mud and finally washed them in a large tub. The volunteers have always been very careful that no one gets hurt. At the end of the afternoon, after a nice shower, we were taught to prepare a typical dish of Thai cuisine and we were offered an excellent meal based on many typical local recipes, very good! Unique and unforgettable experience!
