We went to the Pattaya location and loved it so much we went to Chiang mai as well. We were so happy to hang with elephants while being ethical. Although some elephants are not rescues they are all well cared for.

Yes they do. If you book a morning tour then you get to mud bathe with the elephants and then wash them off in the river.
