Chai Lai Orchid Resort and Elephant Sanctuary

sunny 27 °C

A day and a half of travelling finally brought us to the Chai Lai Orchid Resort, north of Chiang Mai on a small river that runs out of the mountains beyond.
Our little "serene bungalow" is perfectly set among the pathways above the river on the edge of the jungle. We enjoyed watching the elephants bathe and helped feed them coconuts and bananas - rewards for a good day's work with the tourists! Looking forward to sleeping in a bed tonight, even one with full mosquito tent netting (!), and then going for a good hikein the morning...WiFi here not up to many photos, so just a couple for now:

Thanks for taking us on the journey. I am particularly fond of elephants; I'm sure you both made friends with them!
