Anantara Golden Triangle Resort and Spa
has introduced 187 Pounds of Adorable. Born on March 3rd at the world famous Elephant Camp at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort outside Chiang Rai, the 85 kilogram baby elephant, nicknamed Nong Sam, stands 84 centimeters tall at the shoulder and measures 129 centimeters from forehead to tail. The bouncing baby boy was born at to forty-five year old Boon Jan, and is her fifth son. He was nicknamed by his mahout (elephant carer), as is tradition, meaning "three" in Thai and alluding to his birth date on the third day of the third month. Being a Garieng elephant, Nong Sam will choose his own formal name at the age of three in a special ceremony involving bits of paper wrapped around sugarcane. Anantara Golden Triangle Resort and Spa  

National Thai Elephant Day takes place every year on March 13th. The aim of the day is to draw attention to the elephant which is the national animal of Thailand and plays an important part in culture, religion and tradition. A weeklong celebration at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort kicked off with more than 60 children and novice monks from local orphanages and schools invited to the resort to learn about the importance of elephant conservation and affording them a rare opportunity to meet the elephants up close and personal. 

Surrounded by the natural beauty of Northern Thailand's rugged hill country, Anantara Golden Triangle Resort and Spa is a luxury nature retreat set amidst 160 acres of lush tropical jungles overlooking the winding Mekong River and the border with Burma and Laos. The Elephant Camp offers guests such unforgettable experiences as mahout training courses, elephant trekking ,and other conservation activities.
