Thai Cooking and Elephant Tour

Learn Thai cooking at an organic farm

Your guide and driver will meet you at the hotel at 0800 for your Thai Cooking and Elephant Experience. We will leave after breakfast and drive to the Thai Farm cooking school in the countryside. Along the way, we will stop at the attractive Ruamchok local market, where we will spend some time and meet our group. This market is a typical Chiang Mai market with fresh vegetables and fruit.

After arrival at the school, your teacher will welcome and guide you around the organic farm. Other people will join you. You will learn about many kinds of organic herbs, vegetables, and fruits that grow in the garden. You will have the opportunity to pick some of the fresh ingredients you will use while preparing your favorite dishes in one of the spacious, well-equipped kitchens. Each person will have a cooking station. Finally, enjoy eating your meal on the terrace overlooking the fishpond, where you will have a splendid view of the entire farm and the nearby lush mountains.

Meet the elephants of Thailand

After lunch, we will continue our Thai Cooking and Elephant Tour. We will drive to Kanta Elephant Sanctuary, an elephant camp near Mae Malai. It is a beautiful place where they care for the elephants very well. This camp doesn’t offer a show or elephant riding. Other people will join you, and you will learn about the Asian Elephant, an endangered species. Even though they are “domesticated,” elephants are still wild animals, so you must always be careful when you are close to them.

If you want you can change into local clothes to take a bath with them. Then you will meet the elephants, get close to them, and feed them some treats and fruit. After having eaten, the elephants will bathe in the river. Elephants love to play in the water, and you can join them for a while. Then it is time to say farewell to your elephant friends. Drive back to Chiang Mai and where we will arrive back in Chiang Mai in the late afternoon. We hope you enjoyed our Thai Cooking and Elephant Tour.
