Who loves baby animals? link below to see them!









Do you want to go on a fabulous trip? Thailand may be your ticket. Thailand is located in both eastern and northern hemispheres, positioned in Southeast Asia. Thailand is bordered by the Andaman Sea, Gulf of Thailand, Indian Ocean and the countries of Burma (Myanmar), Laos, Cambodia, and Malaysia.


Within Thailand there are so many diverse areas, you can stay a month and not see them all. If you would like to see, visit with the baby elephants seen on social media you will want to visit Chiang Mai, referred to as "the rose of the north". It sits in Northern Thailand, approximately 435 miles north of the capitol city of Bangkok. Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand.



When we visited it was so lush and green, it was a quiet piece of heaven away from the bustling city of Bangkok. So many treasures to see and so much to do. No trip to Thailand is complete without a visit to Chiang Mai.


There are many elephant camps to see and visit, a lot of them are trying to "humanely" have elephant encounters that help the tourist see and interact with the elephants, at the same time help care for these beautiful animals. They are not all the same!


here are some pictures from some of them:

Here are some from when we went to an elephant camp:









Elephants are amazing animals! When you are getting to know your elephant they form a sort of bond with you. During the "elephant trek" if you are falling off or you are nervous the elephants tuck their ears into your legs. They will not allow you to fall off! I did not like the elephant trekking, I would have been happy to just see them and give them their baths. I took the ride because How often are you going to go on an elephant ride?


It was not that long, but felt like the entire day! After the trek you come back and give your elephant a bath. It is another time the elephants bond with you. It was fantastic! They really love you back!



Have you been on a trip to Thailand?

This is what you will see when you drive up.




From the White Temple area Each of the thousands of tin ornaments hanging from these trees had hand written personal notes on them



This is in Chiang Rai it is a place where the White temple is and it is something to see, scary from some angles.




















The market, which looks like every other market you see while traveling.







Bangkok is an entirely different place than Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. If you are visiting Thailand make sure you leave time to visit these two beautiful and diverse areas.




Some of the pictures were taken from google images and belong to the original photographers.
