Interacting with them provides a glimpse into the dynamic that has existed between Thai people and elephants for centuries. It was a 1.5 hour drive from Chiang Mai to Lampang, where the Thai Elephant Conservation Center is located for our Viator Exclusive Elephant Conservation Experience in Chang Mai. During the drive, we chatted with our guide, Sam, while watching the scenery gradually change from the shopping malls and restaurants of Chiang Mai, to the rolling green hills of the countryside.
