Elephant Bathing, Your Next Bucket List

Apart from beautiful beaches, Thailand is known to be home of the Asian elephants. Elephant bathing is a completely unique tour to try out. Thailand is blessed with a number of elephant sanctuaries where visitors can interact with the big creatures in an eco-friendly way. Learning about elephants, feeding them, bathing them, playing with them and also taking photos are some of the fun activities to carry out at an elephant nature park. Elephant nature parks are rescue areas and rehabilitation centers that take care of elephants. Once you arrive at an elephant park, you will start your day with an informative tour of the center and the roles they play for the elephants. After that, you will learn about the history of every animal in the park. Some elephants are injured, others are rescued, and some are sick, old, young, and even abused. After that informative tour, it's time to feed these giants. Their appetite may seem endless and it will all be fun feeding them with fruits and other foods. Once they are full, it's time to take a bath. Don't be afraid to get dirty. Accompany the elephants to the water and give them the best bath. Wash them thoroughly and scrub areas with extra dirt so that after rinsing, a clean elephant is all you got.
