  • We spent the day in elephant world where we got to get involved with many activities such as feeding and washing the elephants and planting their food! It was a really fun day and I would recommend to...  more »

  • So yes tell you some opinions it is touristy, and yes the entry is not give. However the place you really sensitizes and shows you that the elephant is a lucrative business in Thailand. Most of the tourists are ignorant of the suffering caused by rides on their backs. Too bad that he didn't no several elephantworld Center. So yes it's expensive but you do a good deed. And thank you to the volunteers who welcomed us on this wonderful day.

  • Our family of five with three kids under the age of five visited Elephants World and had a blast. Every facet of the experience exceeded expectations. All of the activities are highly participative and you will get sweaty and dirty but that is what makes the experience all the more memorable. Highly recommended.
  • I had such an incredible experience at elephantsworld. I traveled to Kanchanaburi the night before, and at 9:30am the following morning got picked up by the elephants world taxi right at my hotel. I did the one day program. When we arrived at elephantsworld, they went over some safety rules and then we all went to feed the elephants breakfast. After feeding, they split us up into small groups for the daily activities and chores we would be doing. Throughout the day we watched the elephants go about some of their daily activities, such as their mud bath, and we helped prepare food for the elephants. We made sticky rice balls filled with nutrients for the older elephants who don't have teeth, and washed a lot of fruit to get rid of any pesticides that could harm the elephants. At the end of the day, we got to get in the water with the elephants to help wash them. It was apparent to me that the elephants are being treated very well at elephantsworld and they seemed happy! Many of these elephants (they had 27 in total) came from very difficult backgrounds and it amazes me how kind and trusting they still are around humans. The price seems a bit high, but I think it is absolutely worth it. The money you pay for the program all goes towards taking care of the elephants, as elephants world is a not-for-profit organization. I highly recommend this experience to any animal lovers.
  • Great Place, glad to help senior elephants. Everyone shd experience.
  • I can't say enough about this place the elephants are genuinely happy at last. Please choose here and not some cruel trekking place. Google what goes in to training elephants and you will see why you must come here instead of a trek. Or are you a baby stealing torturing type ? Ignorance is bliss but humans must take a stand. One love x great work u lot and thanks for finding my phone and sending it to me the following day xxxxx
  • What a great experience... Friendly staff and an unforgettable visit.

Where to stay in Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi town center offers plenty of comfortable hotels, with pricier ones located right on the banks of the River Kwai. Move away from the river to take advantage of a drastic drop in prices for rooms offering much the same level of comfort and facilities provided by the city's riverside alternatives. Explore the rural areas for budget hotels, quirky rental apartments, and guesthouses making use of their scenic surroundings.
