The week in the city at the Dog Rescue Clinic is filled with treating dogs, temple visits, and Thai culture at a faster pace. While the week at Elephant Nature Park is a more relaxed learning and memorable volunteer experience. Some of the most memorable experiences at Elephant Nature Park were watching the sunset while hearing the trumpeting of elephants, feeding the elephants, watching the water buffalo roam, and the amazing vegan food. In the city and at Dog Rescue Clinic the most memorable experiences were, working with the cats and dogs beside vets, shopping in the markets, spending time in the gorgeous temples and of course the frequent 7-Eleven stops.
Thailand has so much to offer and with Loop Abroad I was able to thoroughly enjoy my time in Chiang Mai without having to worry about a single thing.
