To reduce fuel costs, a girl in Northeast Thailand rides an elephant, going viral

A journey including elephants!

Pupae commutes on the Ole every day to her school, which is just 500 meters from from her home. She reported that her classmates were stunned when they first saw the gigantic beast. She asserts that now that they are used to it, they anticipate seeing Ole when he picks her up for school. The male elephant that his daughter Pupae was caught on camera riding on is named Ole. According to Wisanchol, Pupae and Ole have a tight relationship because Pupae has known them both since she was a tiny child. Pupae has helped her family take care of Ole by feeding and bathing him. Pupae started riding Ole when she was 6 years old. An 11-year-old girl from Buriram province in northern Thailand has become a TikTok sensation by riding an elephant to school to help her family save money on gas.

The daughter’s father, Wisanchol, told the media that his family owns four elephants and that he works with them. In a number of well-known TikTok videos, Pupae is portrayed riding Ole while dressed in her school uniform as the two pass by neighbors. Pupae claims she wants to become a veterinarian when she is older so she can continue to look after elephants. Before Covid-19 broke out, her family’s elephants used to amuse tourists in Ayutthaya, but they were forced to go back to Buriram. One video has received more than 57,000 likes.
