Mountain Fête & Boat Race for Elephants
Chiang Rai & Bkk | 13-17 Mar 2019
On a ridge in northern Thailand overlooking the border with Myanmar and Laos is perched the Anantara Golden Triangle Resort while the neighbouring Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) Camp sits nearby. Together, they will host a series of elephant-themed events in a picturesque mountain setting.
To celebrate National Elephant Day, a fête takes place from 13-14 March, featuring such activities as Walking with Giants, an Elephant Buffet, an arts and crafts market as well as an exploration of Northern Thai cuisine. The exclusive VIP evening function aims to raise significant charitable donations while generating awareness to benefit the future of the Asian elephant.
The second part of the event celebrates next to Anantara Bangkok Riverside, from 15-17 March, continuing the pachyderm homage with a boat race and a fun-filled weekend of sporting and cultural events to suit everyone.
