  • This place seems nice enough, the park itself is very well kept, clean facilities, friendly staff but Although this place is called a conservation centre, there are still explorations of these animals...  more »
  • Great place to see where they care for sick or abandoned elephants. Wonder how the show fits in with a philosophy of care but perhaps the only way they can raise money. 
  • I went aboard the buses to Lampang from Chiang Mai bus station. Air conditioning was Chateau sǎwngthǎew with promises you can catch the bus could have made protection Center 2 and air conditioning without bus ride for free, so it is no timetable or concern, to Lampang from going there around the spot of the other two. (1000 baht). I'd felt was Lampang is approximately 30 minutes from Center, resulting in loss of one hour round trip now, but road protection Center large left and right curves and hard to park the bus in speed was a good choice. Because the Hall was large around by tram. Less number of sideshows, so already on the WEB check is required. And are somewhat dull compared to the facilities of other images in the nature with plenty of elephant also cherish being felt. Buses from Chiang Mai on double-decker buses with a small plush reclining seats. In one way about an hour and a half, two with only 80 baht. Bus travel is recommended to people who have time.

  • Not touristy but a great way to see and learn about asian elephants. A little far from Chiang Mai city but great to combine with other things to do on the way back to town.
  • Very impressive centre, which seems to treat the animals really very well. Show with elephant bathing and demonstration of how the animals worked in the woods and only few circus-style elements.
  • ดีงาม
  • Beautiful old, animals treated well, opportunity to see various aspects of what they do. Elephant walks.
