  • I loved this place. The people are super nice. I confess that I was very concerned about paying for something that could "Haze" of animals. You can see that they take good care of them. The food is, and it is possible to defer to take them for a River bath. Who referred me to was Miss Ann, my beloved guide in Chiang Mai: info@absolutechiangmai.com very cute!

  • Together with my friend to Woody's and it is for us a memorable day! Everything was animal-friendly and well arranged! The conduct, driving and washing, all equally fun. What fun was had to the elephants, while washing in the river. At some point they may pause, some 10-15 minutes little walk around/food. For the joke with water going to throw what the elephant is liked, he did join:)
