  • When I came to Thailand for the first time, I had my second elephant riding experience!! There were not many tourists, and the first time i was able to experience it leisurely, the road which passed by elephant riding was well maintained, but here i had the experience of elephant riding in the supernatural that few people's hands were in, and the elder brother of the elephant messenger on the way I told him to lend me a camera, so I gave it to him, and he got out of the elephant and took a lot of pictures while walking in front of me, and he was a very kind brother!!

  • Don't go there. Regret that we have given our money here. The elephants are chained to a chain, you see that they want to leave but can't. Hartverschurend. They are beaten with sticks with sharp iron hooks. Other elephants also had old wounds from those sticks as far as I could see. There are kneeling, beaten, kicked and shouted against them. Please give WANG-PO ELEPHANT CAMP to rescue organizations, these people must be arrested and these elephants must also suffer a normal life. They don't look happy. Don't go there!!!

  • Elephants are bullied, they are not fed, counting on good tourists who will buy food-water to unfortunate animals
