Mae Sa elephant camp is located on Maerim road, it is a famous place in Thailand. Visit the elephant at work and watch how they are trained. The elephant show is very enjoyable.
Maesa Elephant Camp has been around since 1976, as a conservation centre for domesticated elephants acquired from across the country. Once employed in the logging industry, these elephants found themselves ‘out of jobs’ once heavy machines were brought in to replace them and, as a result, ended up roaming the streets with their mahouts to beg for food.
Our philosophy is to create a natural and healthy environment for the elephants while working to conserve and breed them,due to the dwindling number of Asian elephants left in the wild.
Orchid The flower of elegance
A tall, slender stalk leads to an exquisite flower composed of three inner petals, three outer petals, and a cupped petal distinct from the rest. Labellum, inflorescense, sepal the names of the anatomical parts sound as fabulous as they look. The whole exotic composition is almost alien in appearance, extravagant in the extreme, yet possessed of a delicate intricacy. Orchidaceae is arguably the most stunning and elegant family of flowering plant known to man. For millions of years, the orchid family has thrived and expanded, defying evolution, Mother Nature, and the exploitation of its greatest opponent Man.
The Meo Hilltribe or Hmong people are former inhabitants of the Yellow River Valley in China who fled their home due to Chinese expansionism. Now approximately 120,000 Meo people live in northern Thailand. They are known for their intricate embroidery and colourful costumes. The villagers farm vegetables and fruit, most having given up opium cultivation, once their main employment.
