A must do in Pai

Really enjoyed this attraction as it is a legitimate hot spring in nature. Drove there on scooters. It was a bit pricey to get in as a tourist... I think it was between 300-500 baht per person. It is worth it though, beautiful scenery, a short and easy wa

Conserve Natural Forests

Conserve Natural Forests (CNF) is a NonProfit charity foundation focused on forest restoration and wildlife conservation located outside of Pai, Northern Thailand. CNF has dedicated itself to restoring and enriching natural ecosystems through reforestation efforts as well as reproducing, rehabilitating and reintroducing endangered indigenous species populations to their native environment. A tour of our site maintains a balance between intimate time spent with endangered species on-site, the elephant(s) we are rehabilitating for release back into the wild, and education on the evolution of ecosystems and forest habitats in Thailand. Individuals who visit our site will leave with an intricate understanding of how elephants contribute to maintaining a healthy, bio-diverse ecosystem and how important it is to restore them to their natural environment to have successful reforestation efforts. Our organization maintains a focus on honesty and integrity in conjunction with our mission.
