      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!

      How dangerous is it to get to Umphang ?

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Jan 7, 2011 at 5:29 AM

      I have read my Rough guide and see comments on Youtube videos that the road to Umphang is pretty dangerous, although spectacular.

      I am going mid May so is it a safe journet to make ?

      The area certainly looks well of the main tourist tracks which appeals to me.

      Trecking tours to Thi Lo Su waterfall

      by christine.j Online Now Feb 6, 2006 at 9:14 AM

      And another question, there might be even more to come.
      My son was looking for trecking tours to the Thi Lo Su waterfall, but the only ones he found were 10 day tours. He won't have enough time for this. Are there any trecking tours to the waterfall and the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary that are only 3 or 4 days?
      Can he book these tours in Umphang?
      The tours he read about consisted of trecking for a short distance, then relaxing for several hours. Are these tours so exhausting that you need to relax after one or two miles?
      Once again, I'd appreciate any information. Thank you.

    • Trekking with kids

      by jbslc Online Now Oct 3, 2004 at 11:32 PM

      I will traveling with my family to Thailand in June and am trying to select the best trekking location. We would like to get off the beaten track a bit but will be traveling with our kids ages 6&8. They are good travelers and pretty good hikers but we are concerned that perhaps Umphang is too difficult. Any input? Thanks.
