      Elephant Santuary??? HELP!

      Chiang Mai Jul 11, 2015 at 2:20 AM

      Hi, I am in Chiang Mai from 13th-16th July and planned to do an Elephant sanctuary but the one that came highly recommended is full booked! It was supposed to be the Elephant Nature Park.

      Can anyone recommend an alternative that is ethical?

      It's for 2 adults and 2 teens.

      Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    • Are the no shoes requirements strict in ALL Chiang Mai temples?

      Chiang Mai Jul 12, 2015 at 4:00 AM

      Have polio and wear a knee to foot orthotic. Can remove it at home on dead level carpeted floors, but the slightest uneven surface (even the garden), brings about falls and great difficulty walking. Not so good at over 60. Am wondering if there are any temples in Chiang Mai who relax the strict no shoes rule for the disabled? For instance, was overwhelmed in India, where often accommodation was made for disability by squares of white cotton cloths being produced to wrap and tie around the shoes if unable to remove them.

      What to do - Recommendations!

      Chiang Mai Jul 11, 2015 at 2:51 AM

      We have 3.5 days in Chiang Mai between Krabi and Phuket - what do you suggest for things to do?

      I really want to do an elephant sanctuary (ethical, non mahout type) and have another post for this as the one I wanted to do is fully booked.

      Other than this we are obviously going to do the night markets - any suggestions on how and where to go as I know nothing other than there's night markets to visit!

      I have read a little about some water falls - this seems interesting but we cannot do too much physical activity. We did Tiger Temple yesterday in Krabi and I only made it half way. I am in the middle of my weight loss journey and have lost 5.5 stone but still not physically fit enough for major activities - but I'm 100 times better that I was at the start so I'm OK with this! If we could swim near water falls etc, this would be great - we have 2 teenage boys with us!

      I have heard mixed reviews on the hill tribe, some say very good, others say way too commercialised?
      We like Temples etc but we are doing Bangkok and Ayutthaya so many suggest that this will be more than enough temples!

      Anyway, any other suggestions would be good!

      Hire bike with guide

      by bill9786 Online Now Jun 20, 2009 at 4:14 AM

      I'd like to know if I can hire a bike with a guide/rider instead of riding myself.
      In Vietnam this is common practice as foreigners can't rent vehicles there. Or can I get a taxi to go out of town? I want to do some volunteering or donating to rural schools.

      by stamoz Online Now Jul 26, 2008 at 10:45 AM

      hello everyone,

      i'll be in Pai next january and i wanna know if it's possible to do a 'visa run' to Mae Hong Son at the border with Burma. I issue thai visa for 60 days but in the airport the immigration only stamps for 30; since I heard some foreigners do this process to get another stamp for an extra 30 days that's why i wanna be sure this can be done if i try , thanks
