    Thai Wedding on an Elephant

    24 January 2008


    The provincial administration in Surin and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) are planning a mass wedding on Valentine's Day next month when love couples can take the vow riding elephants.

    The nuptials will take place at the Elephant Research Centre in Tha Tum district of the province. The event is restricted to 30 couples - local as well as foreign - who must register before February 13. They will be selected on first come first serve basis, and at the end of wedding ceremony will be issued marriage certificates.

    The aim is to promote tourism in a province with the highest elephant population in the country.

    For more information, call TAT's office for the Northeast at 044-213-666 and 044-213-030, or visit Surin Province's official web site (available only in Thai) at http://www.dopasurin.org.

    Yes! I'll be there... want me to dress as a man?

    Or did you plan to marry an elephant?
    In that case I'd be there to take pictures

    nice to have such considerate friends.

    btw - at one time, my nickname was Chang Yai. there was a little boy in nursery, nicknamed Chang Noi. I was his favourite nanny so everyone started to call me Chang Yai.

    At the Amphur there is no vows and they also give you a certificate.

    Betti, ask first how much sindt sodt is at stake. I suggest no less than 1,000,000 Bht and truckloads of chocolates.

    Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction.

    Re: Thai Wedding on an Elephant

    I thought the idea was to walk under the elephant to get married, not ride on it?

    I'm slightly afraid to say out loud that I think walking under elephants is for good luck and health during pregnancy. seem to recall Gor's wife under an elephant in a picture.
