Anantara Announces Dates to Bangkok’s 2017 King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament
Anantara Hotels and Resorts has announced the dates for the 2017 King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament. This year’s event will be held by the banks of Bangkok’s mighty Chaophraya River from March 9th – 12th and promises to have a full range of fun elephant festivities for the whole family.
A total of 30 unemployed former street elephants will take part in this year’s festival during which they will be given full veterinary checks and care, much needed food and drink and essential vitamin supplements for the duration of the event.
The King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament recently awarded a silver medal for Sports CSR Initiative of the Year at the Asia 2016 SPIA Sports Industry Awards. Organised by Sport360° and MMC Sportz, in partnership with the Thai Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Sports Authority of Thailand, the awards applauds sports industry leaders that demonstrate a balance between business, community and environment.
Anantara has long been associated with elephant conservation efforts with the formation of The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, which has performed over 40 rescues of elephants off the streets of Thailand, as well as bringing the hugely successful Elephant Parade to Bangkok.
