On elephant to the Golden Triangle
by Jorge Sanchez - 3 years, 8 months ago
Many years ago, together with a girlfriend from Spain, I travelled on elephant for the first time in my life, from Chiang Mai to a village in direction to the Golden Triangle. Each of us was on a kind of basket at both sides of the elephant and the driver was sitting on the elephant head.
The excursion was not expensive at all and the food and accommodation was included. That journey, which lasted three days, will remain forever in our memories as one of the most original in our life.
Afterwards we reached Chiang Rai, mainly on foot, and still spent several days trekking and visiting exotic villages at the borders between three countries: Laos, Burma (today is called Myanmar) and Thailand.
After ten days travelling in the north of Thailand we returned by train to Bangkok.
