It has been nicknamed ‘the sticky waterfall’ because the limestone creates enough friction to stop slipping, so making it very easy to climb up the waterfall (with the help of ropes). The limestone is slightly rough but it isn’t painful to step on, and forms an interesting bubbly pattern. There are 5 different levels to experience and steps on the side of the waterfall leading all the way to the bottom. Most people walk to the bottom and then climb up the waterfall to the top. On a hot and humid day the water is cool and refreshing. While many people wear swimsuits and explore the waterfall, there are lots to do if you don’t want to climb up Bua Tong. And many Thai people spend the day at Bua Thong Waterfall for relaxation. There is also a pleasant walk from the picnic area leading to a shrine with a few pools of crystal clean water from the waterfall.

The elephant is the national animal of Thailand. Elephants are central to Thai culture, and if you’re coming to Chiang Mai hoping to encounter the beautiful Asian elephant, then you’ve come to the right place. Thailand itself has more than 70 elephant camps, most located in the north, and you’ll soon find that some websites and some elephant business camps seem to be peddling a different elephant experience. The abundance of choice however doesn’t guarantee a positive experience for the visitors — nor, importantly, for the elephant — so here is a little background information to keep in mind when making your decision on whether to see elephants, and where to see them.
Elephants have survived together with Thailand for centuries. A Mahout and elephants lived and worked together in regular and working time. For forestry industry in the deep forest, to get the best teak of the world, it needed the elephants in hauling logs. Later in 1989, Thai government cancelled Forest concessions to preserve the forest remaining just a little. Formerly, many elephants, which worked in the forest for logging, became jobless and caused a concern to the mahouts and family, but it brought about one advantage, that is to say that working in the forest in dangerous situation ended as well, and they would start the new life. At present the elephants, mahouts and families have a better livelihood than the past. However, they currently are facing the problem of high cost in raising the elephants as in a day, an elephant eats food about 250 kilogram.
