What do Elephants eat for breakfast?

The Thai people hold their beloved giant, grey elephant in great esteem, and Surin is often known as the ‘province of elephants’. Once a year, Thai’s descend on Surin by every conceivable means of transport – buffalo, rickshaw, pedicar, lorry, van, car, moped, and yes, even by elephant!

The fun begins with a wonderful elephant parade through the streets, and the famous “elephant breakfast” – definitely the biggest breakfast in the world with  streets lined with food for the giant animals to eat

It begins with a beautiful procession of bedecked elephants, camels, horses, and folk dancers. The mahouts proudly embellish their elephants with vibrant colors, jhools (saddle cloth), and heavy jewelry.  - Marjorie Lang
