Scarleny's visit to Chai Lai

Elephant sanctuary

 

Before I go into talking about this magical experience, I want to let you know that this was my fourth time in Thailand and I’ve always been against the use of elephants for human entertainment. I went to Chiang Mai with the sole purpose of working on my healing. This was for me a much needed solo trip during a dark time when I knew I had to seek light for my wellbeing. I started this self love trip by going to see friends who are current expats in Chiang Mai, meet their baby and then dive into a few days of silent meditation and intense yoga. So in between visiting friends and my meditation and yoga retreat I had a few days in the city. I don’t know how I got so lucky (the universe knew I needed this also) but as I searched for a place on airbnb I came across these jungle bungalows remotely located at an elephant sanctuary. So this is how I discovered this beautiful place

U N C O V E R

Seeing as this trip was about spiritual healing I thought, well what better way to rebalance than to immerse myself in the jungle surrounded by nature and these amazing creatures. The more I read on this place the more I uncovered why it was right for me. You guys, The Chai Lai Orchid is the ONLY airbnb in THAILAND where you can live with Elephants! I REPEAT!! You can live with elephants. What?? I mean, I didn't even know this was a possibility. It was unreal waking up to baby elephants roaming around my bungalow. Not only do you get to live in this eco lodge and play with the rescued elephants wait until I tell you about how your economic contribution helps support human rights, by empowering at risk women.
