Let's hop on and start our elephant ride!
As we'd already seen the first part of the show, we went straight ahead to queue up for our elephant ride. Seeing the sign written in Traditional Chinese (instead of in Simplified Chinese) was quite heartwarming!
And not surprisingly, we became the first passengers to board the back of these lovely elephants.
When we departed, my husband said that the scenery reminded him of home.
It was quite wibbly wobbly, so it was quite a challenge to have to hold on to my SLR!
First stop: to buy some snacks for your elephant!
The trainer stops again to feed the elephant some water. (Wait! I thought you weren't supposed to leave the elephant's neck!! Come back, quick!!!)
Then you get to see the elephant(s) in front of you wiggle their buttocks all the way~~!!
As it was way too difficult to hang on to our seats, I didn't manage to get too many photos. We reached our destination in a short while.
On our way back, we get to ride in this oxen cart.
I wasn't too concerned with the condition of the elephants here, but these oxen look like they could use some more food!?
That got me a bit concerned!
Then, again, we bump! bump! bump! all the way back~
And~~~ we're back!
Let's rest for a bit before we get ready for lunch.
Don't miss out on the fabulous meal they have to offer in the next article!
