Songkran is the second oldest elephant at Elephant’s World (74 years old) and she’s had a very hard life. She worked at trekking camps for 70 years, giving tourists rides. When she became too weak to work, her owner decided to donate her to Elephant’s World.
About 40 minutes from the town of Kanchanaburi, lies a beautiful camp dedicated to the well being of old and previously abused elephants.
The elephants is the symbol of Thailand and the top thing to do on most tourist’s itinerary is to ride one.
I am currently running on 2 hours of sleep but that didn’t stop me from dragging my ass to the Amorosa rooftop bar across the river from Wat Arun to watch the sunset this evening.
After 20 hours in the air, I’ve finally made it to Bangkok!I made sure to get out the door as early as possible this morning to give myself time to explore. With only a day in the city, I decided to narrow down my options and see the most popular sights, Wat Pho and Wat Arun.
