Today I went to the Elephant Parade House in Chiang Mai to paint a miniature elephant. Three other ladies had started already and I joined them. As I already made up my mind on which colors and design I would use I could start straight away. It took me almost three hours to finish. The staff is very friendly and... More

Last Friday I went to Elephant Parade House and participated in their art workshop, painting an elephant in any way you want, great fun for young and old. I was also shown their new 2 part kids quiz (touchscreen!) in 2 parts, tried it out myself and learned a few new things about elephants. The second part is based on... More

I attended a conference in Chiang Mai last November and was looking for an original place to take family and friends. I had heard of the opening of the Elephant Parade House and both the concept and mission seemed great. We booked for an art workshop for half a day and this turned out to be the best memory of...

The exhibited colorful elephants are fabulous to look at (can be bought :-)) and I SO much enjoyed painting my OWN elephant after having been inspired by what I saw. Great artists help you if you need it while your painting. You can also go there alone, I'm sure you'll meet charming people.

I recently went to the Elephant Parade House to participate in one of their art workshops. Already when entering the House you will get inspired by the hundreds of beautifully painted elephants. The workshop was great fun and it was also interesting to hear about elephant conservation efforts supported by the Elephant Parade House. Overall, a wonderful experience for young... More

The Elephant Parade House newly opened and we first attended the opening ceremony. The showroom is great and there are elephants in all sizes and all colors. Very nicely done. Shortly afterwards we went with our team of 30 people to the art studio at the same place and we had the chance to paint our very own elephants. This... More

I love elephant parade and have seen the statues in London and Singapore so I was thrilled to discover the workshop experience (for the child in me!). My friends and I spent an afternoon painting our own resin elephants with the help of the artists and had a lot of fun. The difficult bit was getting started! Coffee and biscuits... More

We spent some time in Chiang Mai in mid November and we arranged for our 9 year old son to do a workshop at the Elephant Parade (Chiangmailand Road). He spent the morning at Elephant Parade where he was instructed by 2 lovely Thai ladies to paint the resin Elephant (a full kit is provided). He was so thrilled with... More
