|It was very exciting to be so close to the elephants, but I was also very aware the one behind us could back up into us at any second. Note my grip on Romeo's waist, ready to pull him out of harm's way in an instant.|
|May I have that bunch of bananas please?|
|It's pretty amazing to see a herd of elephants happily walking through their natural habitat . . . towards you . . . trumpeting.|

For spending a day at Elephant Nature Park, wear something that you don’t mind getting wet and dirty, as you will be walking into the river with the elephants. I wore a tank top, shorts, bathing suit, and Keens. I also brought a change of clothes and shoes to change into before getting back into the van for the return to the hotel. I also brought my waterproof camera so I didn’t have to worry about it when taking pictures in the river.
I used Lonely Planet Discover Thailand to plan our Thailand trip.
