3. Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary

Family bonding is never limited to movie sessions and jungle trekking. Heck, some of us only do those things with friends. Say, perhaps convincing them to visit our endangered elephants. You may learn a thing or two about how nature and conservation share a specific connection in a parent-child relationship. And hopefully, it’ll boost your geography and strategic planning grades!
