Other Deals to Consider:
You might have company when you settle in for your morning cup of coffee at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort. Here elephants take center stage, and your luxurious digs are in the midst of their natural habitat at the convergence of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. Anantara paired with a traditional mahout village that works alongside the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, which performs street rescues, provides employment and gives more than 25 elephants and 60 people a comfortable living. That means the once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll get by interacting with these gentle creatures is life changing for them, too.
Learn the basics of elephant command from a skilled mahout, whose strong bond with his animal is based on a language of verbal cues and light touches behind the ear. Take a ride through nature trails through indigenous forest and guide your new friend to a bathing ritual in the river. Have a rewarding soak of your own in the infinity pool overlooking the tree canopy leading to the Mekong River. Savor a private meal at Baby Elephant Camp, followed by a cup of the world’s most rare and expensive coffee (which also involves elephants in its production).
