Bangkok, January 18th, 2016: The colourful herd from Elephant Parade Bangkok that has delighted Thailand’s capital for the last two months has moved back to the more natural surroundings of Lumphini Park for the final stop of their tour from 18th – 29th January 2016.
After a successful launch at Siam Paragon and Asiatique to honour the 88th birthday of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Lumpini Park is the last chance to get up close and personal with celebrity artwork from: Paul Smith, Nirut Sirichanya, Tony Jaa, Sirinya Bishop, Kong Saharat and Pod Moderndog before they get auctioned off by Christie’s at a gala dinner to be held at Anantara Siam Bangkok on February 17th 2016.
All eighty–eight elephants showcased in Elephant Parade Bangkok are available for the public to bid for and own in an online auction and final proceeds will be donated to the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation who in turn will select strategic partners to drive forward key projects including building the first elephant clinic in Chiang Mai’s Mae Teang Valley, expanding their Positive Reinforcement Target Training Project to even more elephants and helping protect the wild elephants in Thailand’s National Parks.
To help raise more awareness and funds for elephant welfare and conservation projects, Anantara Hotels Resorts & Spas are giving Elephant Parade visitors the chance to win a seven day trip to Anantara’s resorts in the Maldives and other exceptional prizes through an Instagram competition. The grand prize winner will enjoy the authentic luxuries of Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort and Anantara Veli Maldives Resort, other prizes include a four day stay at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in Thailand and a 75-cm Elephant Parade statue of the winner’s choice from a selected range of designs.
