Mae Rim just got a whole lot better for visitors to Chiang Mai with the recent opening of the Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park.
Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park is an amazingly refreshing and unique, eco-friendly, naturally built, outdoor museum park focused on introducing and explaining the unique steps involved in making their memorable and world famous paper products from elephant poop fibers.

A truly amazing experience to see first-hand with great opportunities to take photos in a tastefully designed, lush and beautiful environment.
