Staying in touch with animals and taking a walk outside in the beautiful exotic nature of Thailand will give you a boost of energy like no other.
Visiting Thailand and not riding an elephant is truly a felony! Kidding, of course, but riding this huge four-legged mammal friend should top the list of things to do while visiting Thai.
So, if you want to dive into the exotic wonders of this tropical country head in, you should save a time slot for a 30-minute ride on the elephant in the jungle.
A large and kind animal will accept delicious gifts of bananas from you, and pose for pictures gladly. A boost of positive emotions - and incredible memories to cherish - is guaranteed!
