  • So many big and beautiful elephants. Fabulous staff. Helpful and friendly. Elephants are not inexpensive to purchase.
  • Very interesting little shop with a great purpose. A great place to buy or make a handcrafted and unique keepsake. Even though some larger items were way out of our price range, we were able to find some things that were perfect for remembering our Chiang Mai trip. Spent over thirty minutes just trying to make a final decision.
  • Great fun for kids, very beautiful elephants art , and all for a good cause (30% goes for elephants reserve)...
  • I wandered by here last night and thought I'd drop in and purchase one of their beautifully hand-painted elephants (which come in various sizes) as a souvenir. Instead I ended up sitting down for an hour (bored husband at my side) painting my own! This place is wonderful, a great DIY keep sake and helpful staff.
  • Kids & Wife enjoy it, paint yr own elephant. But spend 2hrs there.

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
