  • It is a pity that a trip to this place is included in the excursion "Kwai" from the operator of Pax. Elephants in terrible condition, many of them are so weakened that cannot built trunk for fruit, don't believe the tales guides on how im feeling great. All the animals sit on the circuit in anticipation of tourists and apparently very hungry.

  • Visited a village elephant Maha Wang Chang during a trip on the River Kwai in November 2017. Immediately buy a bag of bananas-they come in handy! First show smart eared talents draw trees, dancing Gangnam-style and doing all sorts of other interesting stuff! Then-with high stage sit down on the seat, the anchor on the back and move on. Immediately after ski photographer, you can buy a photo. At some point the driver peels on the ground and we alternately take his place-on the neck of an elephant kicked when the ears! We photographed (for a small fee). Then slowly go through the village, seamlessly, with a height of oziraja is rocking the scenic surroundings and periodically feeding bananas in extended trunk. And then bathing (tickets)! Riding without seat-down to the river. Elephant dives, lurking under the water and sezzhaesh in water, sit down on the trunk, and it lifts you out of the water, gets up on hind legs-lifting up you trunk over a throws into the water! This is Super! We love jelefantov!

  • Coincidentally I was sitting at an excursion to this terrible place. On site is immediately already on that elephant, stuck to a chain where they are. The elephants are with a hook with iron rod beaten to the desire of a man to perform. Please people, don't go to this place. There are several ' real ' Sanctuary's on Thailand. Let your well informed before you get to a false sanctuary is like this.
