White Elephants, Yangon (Rangoon)

(1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
White Elephants displays the animals that, throughout history and in numerous Burmese legends, were important and believed to bring good luck to those who owned them. Interestingly, the elephants are not actually white, but are in fact pinkish in color, due to their very rare condition of albinism. Here you'll see three of the elephants sadly chained to a pole, only occasionally taken outside to take part in traditional ceremonies.

  • 3 poor animals attached to the shade. That's all just terrible to behold. Whites? Not really, clear gray

  • Chained elephants with very little freedom of movement. The Guide says that the male last year killed her trainer. Sorry for the trainer, but hard not to understand the reasons of the elephant. Avoiding the visit, it is not you will do good to elephants (so they are there for the Burmese), but you will be spared a shabby show.

  • Before you go to the airport I stopped to see white elephant. It is increasingly clear that gray elephants. Before you leave, make a stop. Elephant is attached for safety is end of day I guess a little more freedom. . If the owner it my comment please a bit more freedom thanks...
