Day 7 – Chiang Mai, Thailand

The tour I booked for this day was called Elephant Riding and Bamboo Rafting. It is listed on the top 10 list of things to do in Chiang Mai. You will find that this list is fairly typical across all hotels and tour companies.

For us, we went to a Orchid and Butterfly farm first. Beautiful coloured orchids were on display that take many years to grow. The butterflies at this location were also amazing in colour.

Next stop was the Elephant riding. These are magnificent creatures. The package also includes riding on a wagon with two bulls pulling you along. The Elephant show was next where they got the elephants to perform all sorts of tricks and you were able to feed and take photos with them. The highlight was the ability for one elephant (named “Suda”) to paint a very realistic drawing!

As it was a Sunday, we went to the Sunday Market. This is huge in comparison to just the Night Markets. Make sure you book your stay in Chiang Mai over a Sunday to experience this.
