這是我們第一次來到清邁,再出發去清邁前我和我朋友就一直在找到一個可以和大象互動可是不是騎大象的地方,一開始我是想訂elephant park,後來我看很多評論發現一天可能會有100多個人在一起,我就決定再找找看有沒有更適合的,後來就發現了Karen Tribe,這應該是我這輩子做過最正確的決定之一,真的很值得。一天只有10多位來自其他各個國家的人一起,一開始會和每隻大象互動,後來會分配大象照顧,我們陪大象洗澡,吃飯,走森林,真的是很棒的經驗,而且不只是照顧大象而已,你還可以遇見來自世界各地的人和他們交流,部落的人就像是家人一樣,大家都很快樂很照顧彼此,雖然價格相較於其他類似的團體比較高一點,但相信我,真的很值得。你不會後悔的,而且午餐超美味。我們已經等不及要回去了,也很想念部落的大家!
