Travel Experience

Located about one hour from Chiang Mai, the Chai Lai Orchid has two idyllic properties. Live with elephants in our nature retreat featuring riverside bungalows, surrounded by lush tropical forest, or wake up with elephants above the clouds in a peaceful mountain retreat with stunning panoramic valley views from the top of the mountain.

Responsibility

The Chai Lai Orchid is so much more than an eco-lodge and home for rescued elephants– We are Daughters Rising, an anti-trafficking organization, fighting exploitation by empowering our sisters to rise above poverty and help lift their communities. Through providing a safe home, education, and employment, we empower marginalized women to overcome intergenerational poverty and to uplift their communities. In the context of unethical tourism, we strive to be different: By prioritizing social transformation over profit, we believe we can protect the environment, our community, and the elephants.

Business Case

Chai Lai Orchid is a social business created to stop exploitation. All of our proceeds go to fund our anti-trafficking organization, Daughters Rising. It’s time to turn the tables on traffickers. Let’s harness the vitality of Thailand’s tourism industry to empower at-risk girls and women, rather than exploit them. By contributing to the cause, you help us take this first step to eradicate the practice of human trafficking.
