A trip to Mae Sa Elephant Training Centre is often combined with a trip to Mae Sa Waterfall. The centre offers a show where elephants show their ability to move logs and display other skills that have made the giant beasts vital to Thai forestry. You can feed the elephants on show and observe all aspects of the centre's training activities.
