So many lovely artistic designs to select from and service was impeccable. The shop is modern, clean, and well lit with nice displays. A must stop on the way to the night market in Chaing Mai.

So many uniquely painted elephants! I had to take several home! I especially appreciate how they take your elephant out of the box for inspection and the friendly staff. Not to mention, you're helping the elephants. Will return.

Yes, pre-book is required. The workshop cost for 10 cm. elephant is 600 THB and 15 cm. is 1000 THB. Also, it takes about 1 - 1.30 hours. depending on the design.
