Elephant Parade House

From the Conservation Center to the Nature Park, the north country of Thailand offers travelers plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with some of the nation’s biggest mammals. But perhaps the most unique elephant-themed experience—and certainly a favorite among travelers—is a trip to the Elephant Parade House.

Visitors can wander the colorful gallery of life-sized baby elephant statues painted in vibrant hues by local and international artists. These fun 3-D artworks have been displayed in public markets, parks and train terminals in cities all around the world. Handcrafted replicas of some of Elephant Parade House’s most famous statues are available to take home, but the best part of visiting this popular stop is the chance to paint a personalized statue, which could be displayed in the next big public elephant parade.
