You then get a chance to feed them by buying the 20 baht food that the caretakers sell. On the other hand, it’s also quite sad hearing the stories of these Elephants and their caretakers. You see the Elephants need hundred of kilos of food everyday and we are not sure if they are truly nourished properly. The caretakers had to feed themselves too as well as the elephants.
One thing that I like here in Thailand, is that you’ll never miss an opportunity to meet a real elephant. They will just be walking around town with their guides and caretakers.
