A lifetime of memories from our trip to Thailand
Jul 23 - Aug 5, 2023
We had an amazing trip to Thailand. Tina provided us an unforgetable itinerary of unique experiences in three different areas of Thailand. All very unique and different from each other. So happy we got to see all these difference facets of Thailand. Our local guides and drivers were polite and caring and very knowledgeable and deeply cared that we had a great experience.
Very happy with the Kim Kim experience!
Located in the heart of Chiang Mai with easy walking access to local shops and restaurants yet it provides an oasis of calm and serenity with green courtyards and pools. Great breakfast as well.
This was one of our favorite activities. While it is a tourist activity, it provided us a rare glimpse at the amount of work of feeding and taking care of these beautiful creatures in a way that felt very authentic. We started by driving on the back of a truck to a farm to cut down with machetes the plants to feed the elephants, carrying the food back, cutting it into pieces and feeding the elephants. We also made rice balls to feed them additional vitamins. We made natural sponge and soaps for the bath from the trunk of a tree. We hightly recommend this activity for a humane and authentic way to interact with elephants and help their caretakers.
This was such a fun experience! It greatly surpassed my expectations. We made food from scratch that I didn't think could be made in the time frame of a cooking class. And the food was delicious. Really the best tasting food we had. Hint: go hungry because you will have a hard time eating all the food.
