Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park is an eco-friendly, naturally built, outdoor museum park that introduces and explains the unique steps involved in making our much talked about paper products from elephant poop fibers!
The interpretive walking tour through our lush gardens brings visitors through eight different pavilions explaining each stage of our fascinating process from poo collection to rinsing to final product assembly. Visitors are encouraged to pull up a stool, roll up their sleeves and join together with our talented artisans and guides and participate in our head-turning process!
Complemented by the presence of rich graphics and signage, visitors will also be introduced to Chiang Mai’s long and rich history with traditional paper-making and handicrafts production. A light history of paper covering its invention in China almost 2000 years ago, its spread throughout Asia and expansion to Egypt and the Middle East, Europe and the Americas is also included.
The Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park journey is typically a 45-60 minute memorable adventure full of laughter, fun and eye-opening education with truly unique photo-taking opportunities of this one-of-a-kind experience. The Park is appropriate for all age groups and is extremely kid-friendly!
In a single destination, Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park encompasses so many aspects of what the typical visit to Chiang Mai should be all about: genuine eco-tourism, history and culture; artisans; local crafts; education, fun and one-of-a-kind shopping!
