Anantara Hotels and Resorts presents the first charity-driven celebration of Thailand’s majestic national animal - the elephant.

From the banks of the mighty Mekong to the River of Kings, this week-long celebration will link the natural and the urban in two distinctive and quintessentially Thai locations. Starting at the Anantara Golden Triangle on March 13, 2019, guests can see the elephants in their natural habitat before watching the Elephant Boat Race and festival at Anantara Riverside.

Along with the exciting elephant boat race competition, there is also a weekend of enormous entertainment planned including the digital dry dock rowing tournament, the Old Siam themed Ladies Day to musical concerts, champagne tents, beer gardens and much more family fun. Watch from the banks of the Chao Phraya as international teams, including Thailand’s own Navy Seals, participate in the age-old cultural tradition of dragon boat racing, paddling unique elephant themed boats on the river.

Anantara Hotels & Resorts is leading the way in high-impact fundraising for National Elephant Day, aiming to raise significant charitable donations while generating awareness to benefit the future of the Asian elephant.
