Asian Elephant – KhaoYai National Park, Thailand
KhaoYai National Park in Thailand is known for its forest elephants. My wife and I stayed a couple nights here during our tour of South East Asia hoping to catch a glimpse. However it wasn’t in the cards. Instead we found this guy and his manhout (elephant driver). For a couple of bucks we rode him through the forest and found gibbons, monkeys, and foot long scorpions. He loved to swim us across several rivers and would spray us with his trunk to cool off. This guy would be great to travel on the I-5 in rush hour traffic. If you are thinking of getting an elephant as your next mode of transportation here is one bit of advice. Don’t wear shorts when driving your elephant. The hair on the top of it’s head are like the bristles of a broom and very irritating to say the least.
Have you ever ridden an elephant? If so please leave a comment about the experience or better yet send us a photo.
