This made the Chiang Mai experience for me. The driver was timely and very personable. Experienced a more natural area outside of Chiang Mai. Elephants were not chained or tied and we started the morning feeding elephants. Then we learned the basic commands. We rode...More

We had a wonderful day, enjoyed learning about the elephants and various calls in how to direct them, lunch was very nice and then the afternoon riding elephants down to the lake and washing and playing with them . A day we will remember.

We'd like to visit Woody Elephant Training in August and stay somewhere rural for the night before hand. We won't have a car. Will Woodys pick up from places other than the city centre?

I'm not 100% sure, but they did pick me up from my hotel in Chiang mai cbd, I say yes, but as I said, not 100% sure, I think it depends on your hotel, ask the reception when you arrive is my best bet, as for the park itself... More
