Another quick stop in Chiang Mai and a beautiful (and very windey) bus around the hills of northern Thailand to reach the hippie hang out of Pai. Think a less bogan version of Nibin and old Byron Bay-esque with a little bit of Thai thrown in and a lot of health food restaurants and you’ve got Pai. Reunited with my gal pals we ate lunch on swings, I was blown away with the healthy, organic food choices and caught up on the last two weeks worth of stories!
Morally I didn’t want to ride an elephant. I actually had selected to trek for the second day of my trip but after a nasty fall and painful graze of skin off my knee (as well as the only person who had selected the two day trekking option) I was forced to come along with the rest of the group to the elephant camp. Instead I just sat and watch and fed the free roaming elephants grass.
