ABOUT THE DESIGN OF STARBUCKS CHIANGMAI ICON MUG
Starbucks Thailand has released Starbucks Chiang Mai Icon Mug featuring an Elephant of the Elephant Nature Park (ENP) which is the flagship project of Save the Elephant Foundation.
Unlike other tourist destinations in Thailand,
Elephant Nature Park delivers something unique — a chance to interact with elephants without exploiting them
While Elephants are revered in the Thailand, are not free from abuse. Every day, wild baby elephants are captured and taken away from their mothers (who are often killed) and forced to undergo training to domesticate them. However,
ENP provides a sanctuary for these creatures broken by tourism and the illegal logging industry.
The Starbucks Chiang Mai Icon Mug is part of the 2008 Starbucks Thailand Collection. Unlike other Starbucks mugs which are made in China, the Starbucks Chiang Mai Icon Mug and all other Starbucks Thailand mugs are made in Thailand. Hence, if you get one not made in Thailand, chances are its a fake one.
Chiang Mai also referred to as Chiangmai is the largest and most culturally significant city in northern Thailand. It is the capital of Chiang Mai Province, a former capital of the Kingdom of Lanna and was the tributary Kingdom of Chiang Mai.
Chiang Mai means “new city” and was so-named because it was the new capital, founded in 1296, succeeding Chiang Rai in the capital of the Lanna kingdom.
