Follow VIVA's contributing videographer, Austen Paul, as he takes us into Chiang Mai's Hug Elephant Sanctuary. While Thailand has a lot of places to spend time with these gentle giants, you have to be careful to pick one that treats the animals with dignity and respect. After all, we love these beautiful creatures! Help to support them by sharing this video.
