There is an ethical business near Luang Prabang called Elephant Village where they house old elephants and provide elephant riding trips without hurting or drugging the elephants. Really nice to see, a great example of making a difference AND a profit. I hope the German owner has got very rich off it because he has saved a large amount of the forest and a handful of elephants.

Also ziplining! Great fun.
