    Thank you for your ear-flapping blog.
    My already strong identification with elephants has grown even more, reading elephants are happy when they eat yummy food.
    I hope to go to Chiang-Mai next year and experience elephants as a mahout as you did.

  2. […] Chiang Mai is famous for the elephant sanctuaries. We chose to go to Chiang Thai Heritage, because it’s a small project with only four elephants, which are all saved from abusive work. Tu and his team dedicate their lives to provide the elephants a happy life. We got to spend the day with the elephants as their mahout (caretaker). Tu learned us a lot about their behaviour and how to recognize when an elephant is happy. […]

    A great article on your visit to Chiang Thai Heritage. Much happiness for me visiting there too! It was an amazing highlight in my life. A great surprise to meet Tu and his team, help cut the sugarcane and bathe the elephants in the river. Tu is also wonderful chef and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking my lunch under his supervision. I hope to return one day and at present somehow help Tu with his projects of protecting the trees and growing more foliage to conserve the space for the elephants.

      Thank you, Di! Nice to see you have also visited Chiang Thai Heritage and that the elephants made you happy too 🙂 We hope to visit Tu and his team too again someday, because their work is amazing and heartwarming. We hope you had a lovely time in Thailand!

      Happy greetings,

      Vincent & Margot
