Filming King Naresuan

Today the Kraal was transformed into a movie set with filming taking place of the next instalment of King Naresuan. The elephants and mahouts were dressed in all their finery ready to film some battle scenes. It gives you a real sense of the power of these animals and the important role they played in Thailands history.

Sawadee Pi Mai - Happy new year!! 

Songkran has to be experienced to be believed. The colours, sights, sounds, smells and of course water make for an amazing atmosphere. On April 9th the Elestayers went in to town to be filmed by the worlds media water fighting with the elephants and then again on the 12th. The offical Songkran day and the parade with a full day of water fighting is April 13th.
