Race the River to Victory - Anantara Hotels Announces a Week of Festivities for Thai National Elephant Day
Anantara Hotels and Resorts reveals plans for the first charity-driven celebration of Thailand’s majestic national animal - the elephant. From the banks of the mighty Mekong to the River of Kings, this week-long celebration will link the natural and the urban in two distinctive and quintessentially Thai locations.
The spirit of elephants will shape the festival, from the jungle where visitors can get up close and personal with the pachyderms, to Bangkok’s buzzing waterfront where an artistic installation from the Golden Triangle Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) will make their presence felt.
Perched on a ridge in northern Thailand overlooking the border with Myanmar and Laos, Anantara Golden Triangle and the neighbouring GTAEF Camp will host a series of elephant-centred events in a picturesque mountain setting.
A family-friendly affair, the fête will feature such activities as Walking with Giants, an Elephant Buffet, an arts and crafts market as well as an exploration of Northern Thai cuisine and an exclusive VIP evening function.
Whilst the teams battle it out on the Chao Phraya River; on-land entertainment includes the digital dry dock rowing tournament, the Old Siam themed Ladies Day to musical concerts, champagne tents, beer gardens and much more family fun to come.
