  • They recommended us to visit the hospital of elephants since we were looking for a "no show". Remove the entry 220bats and went by bus to the Centre. Make a show and them force to do things for them tourists, painted, can raise you up... etc. Not was what was looking for, me has liked the experience but I have given penalty. Some chained, the part of the hospital is isolated but you can do it on your own, we have left us come with the bike. This part is very well, working with the elephants. In the nursery of elephants had a baby, but also chained. The employees do not speak much English. No, expected me more.

  • This place is highly recommended, since you can learn from the elephants and be as close to them as you want. Some people criticize that the elephants are chained and trained, however, I think that the people in charge of the place treat them very well and they spend it well in the water! It is a great way in which people who cannot see these animals in their countries, can learn from them and how is that they helped in large buildings of antiquity.

  • This is really very nice and elephants are treated well. The opportunity to have a good time for young and old. The show is well led and allows especially these "Giants" closely, give them to eat and to make pretty pictures. A stroll on elephant back is to do it without hesitation. This makes a little change of scenery and price benefits the centre which has a hospital and a nursery to visit also.

  • 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.
