Luxurious Camp



Elephant Camp

Indigenous Golden Triangle Culture

Gone are the days when the mist shrouded mountains of Chiang Rai played host to smuggling routes connecting the porous borders of Laos, Burma and Thailand. Today you’re more likely to spot a line of colourfully dressed hill tribe ladies picking tea on a rich verdant hillside than a caravan of opium smugglers disappearing into the mist. In this region, traditions worth keeping have been kept while the ecology and livelihoods of people have been improved beyond measure.

Amongst the projects that have kept traditions alive is the Elephant Camp at Anantara Golden Triangle Resort and Spa. Established with royal support, the Elephant Camp allows tourists to integrate with elephants under the skilled guidance of a Thai elephant trainer, known as a mahout.  Visitors to the camp can enjoy the adventure of an elephant trek through the jungle and learn the secrets behind the mahout’s trade before experiencing the thrill of bathing with these mighty creatures.

The Golden Triangle encapsulates a region of stunning beauty seared in myth and legend. So when the day is done and the curtain falls; stand at the vista of a spectacular sunset and surrender yourself to the mystique of The Golden Triangle.

Memorable Voyage

Anantara Cruises Anantara Cruises

Once in a Lifetime Voyages from Bangkok

There are numerous ways to explore Bangkok: By tuk tuk or motorcycle taxi, by foot or by bicycle, by Skytrain, bus, MRT… the list goes on. However, the most pleasurable way is to go with the flow and follow the winding path of the Chao Phraya River – known famously as The River of Kings. 

Anantara River Cruise takes a one hundred year old rice barge, beautifully converted into a luxury boat of shining teak on a two night three day cruise. The temples and stilted communities that line the Chao Phraya echo the history of Bangkok, a city whose foundations evolved along the riverbank.

The destination is the ancient capital of Ayutthaya, a fascinating city of temple ruins and historical intrigue where you’ll be free to explore on foot. This is one voyage that’ll unveil something of the mystique of ancient Siam and remain in your memory for a long time to come.
