Thailand - the Thai elephant has been revered for centuries. It is the symbol of the nation. At many temples, you will find images of elephants - representing strength and wisdom. The Thai elephant is still an important part of the culture - for many it is still a magical animal and deserving of respect.I enjoyed looking into the elephants eyes - I’m sure if the elephants could speak, they would have many stories to tell.
