A unique 'Thai touch’

The impressive touch that you will never forget.

If you’re thinking about visiting Thailand, why not try doing something that you have never done before? Some activities will enrich your life; they might not advance your career but just having fun is an important part of our lifestyle. If you never try, you will never know, so be adventurous.

Have you ever touched an elephant? Well you can at the Thai Elephant Care Centre in Chiang Mai is an elephant sanctuary, which promotes the fair treatment and well-being of elephants. These elephants are not for you to ride, but to take care of, feed, bath and treat their wounds.

The mangrove forest is an important ecological site in Thailand. If you would like to volunteer, you can help with planting and regenerating the mangrove forest. It’s a hard day’s work, but the sense of accomplishment and knowing you helped is worth it.

Thai rice is nice and fluffy, but eating rice isn’t exciting enough. How about we plant some rice instead? This activity might get your hands dirty, but how many chances will you get to have this unique experience?

The Bang Chao Cha sub-district, Pho Thong district, Ang Thong province is famous for bamboo crafts. So if you want to get creative and make a hat, basket or more, this is the place for you. Or if you want to try your hand at silk weaving you can go to many places in the Northeast, but if you want to try Batik (the process of drawing on a wax cloth to create some amazing designs) then you will need to travel South.

Always try to do and feel new things. Strive to have new experiences because not only will you have an interesting and memorable time, but they might just be useful in the future.
