I was initially reluctant to do any elephant attractions during my time in Chiang Mai because I was searching for an authentic experience in this culture-rich city. Despite my reluctancy, I ended up choosing Elephant Nature Park and am very glad I did so. Elephants are an important part of Thailand's history and are facing an uncertain future in this country. Elephant nature park allowed me to get up close to the creatures while repsecting them simulttaneously. We were able to feed, pet, and bathe the animals and it is an experience I will not soon forget. If you're torn between which elephant park to visit, know that ENP is a sound moral choice that is also incredibly fun.
