Two final attraction that we visited in Chiang Mai;
Mae Taeng Elephant Park & Clinic.
If you've always wanted to experience an elephant ride in Chiang Mai, then this is the place to go to. It was my first time ever on an elephant so I was quite nervous about it and getting to be on one of the biggest at that park, doesn't help with my fear of heights. I'm glad I braved myself tho, it was an experience like no other, altho at times I felt like i was slipping through the seats! They are also many other activities such as Bamboo Rafting, Ox Cart rides, an introduction to Rural life in Thailand, and more at the Park. As always we were on a tight schedule, so we didn't get to try it all.
Umbrella Making Centre.
The arts and handicraft centre will amaze you. The umbrella designs are fascinating, from the small decorative ones to those for your garden. And if you don't see any particular design you like, there's a lot of skill full artist who can draw what you want on the spot. They can even draw on your purse, handbag, hat, jacket, t-shirt and even jeans. I had one of them to draw a golden dragon at the back of my phone for only 50 baht. This centre is definitely a good place to buy some souvenirs for everyone back home.
