  • Visited this place in the two-day excursions on the River Kwai. All super, all enjoyed a great show, which was organized by local Thais, simply dements. Elephant trekking was also delicious, especially after we gave 100 izvozchiku b. Photos done a bunch of local folk fal'klera've heard, in the face of all the same cab, and the culmination was bathing in the River from the trunk of the elephant, everyone enjoyed it.

  • We came in a group have this camp. See this little elephant chained next to the track of the show, and trying to break its chain broke the heart. Then during the show, the trainer used his stick to force the poor elephant to do her stupid show. You could see the sadness he felt in the eyes of the animal. Right now my appetite. Please go your way, do not condone this.
