  • I have never seen such a terrible place of animal cruelty! Just don't go! We were there 2 days ago and that was also the last time. We had us unfortunately previously read not the reviews, which was a bad mistake. The elephants were beaten with a hoe and sticks, that an elephant even bled on the head. A little elephant baby was extremely short chained to his mother, so that there is not move could. Have felt so sorry for the animals! That it exists at all in our world, is really unfortunate and cruel!

  • We stopped and filmed about 12 elephants walking around!!! We are going to go on an elephant ride soon!!!! These elephants were larger than most I have seen at elephant farms.... this place actually i...  more »
  • Visited five or six times the elephant ride was second. Because I was 4:30 PM the first ticket in that "is 7 minutes". However, actually, in a matter of minutes 7-on the contrary, wanted to end soon as long as there are no wonder was of 4-5 minutes, back to you quickly. Certainly had other customers, compared with the previous, was a world of difference. Also buy banana ride, or pass as a gratuity is always, of course, had you or given to the elephant, "chips," "chips" and relentlessly pressed continuously. Depending on the nature of the mahout, but also these does not mean breaking the atmosphere to maintain elephants and control is necessary, so that is a good impression. Each when abroad, but we Japanese are not familiar with its customs basically conform to the customs, but also in the proposed media said.

  • The animals there are getting abused only for the tourists. A drugged tiger on a chain while you can cuddle his cubs isn't natural and definitely not ok. If you decide to visit the animal shows or ride an elephant here, you are basically supporting animal abuse.
  • Good floating market in Autthaya. I was here 2 times. For Thailand people free, for other 200 baht. Have show. Can take boat. Many shops of clothes and food.
  • The elephants seem well cared for but the big cats are probably being drugged to make them "friendly" for tourists. Skip the lion, tigers and animal performance show. Ride an elephant around the ruins and then pop over to the floating market. 200 baht gets you a 10 minute boat ride and entrance to the market. Vendors are reasonably priced. IMPORTANT: You must bring your own toilet paper for the bathroom! Be sure to stash some in your purse or man bag before heading out.
  • Decent floating market. Dual Thai and Foreigner pricing is in full effect. The show is good even if you don't understand Thai, lots of audience participation.
  • Cheap hats & souvenirs. But the tix to the floating market is expensive. Thanks God I don't want to buy the entrance tix.
