In the community, they say "If people can live, Elephants can live.". They are coming from Guay ethnicity which is the ancient natives of Southern Isan. Through the age, they kept wild elephants in service for more than 200 years. Nowadays the persistence of raising elephants has become a huge challenge for children and grandchildren in the community.

Experience the charm of various traditions and cultures of the Kuay people that reflect the respect between them and elephants.
