  • In itself this entertaining elephant camp, the children found the elephant show beautiful and the ride on the back of the elephant great. Still we had itself a very mixed feelings at this tour, because you see that the elephants with a stick with sharp point be struck hard on their heads to get them to do all those tricks. Elephants live in any case not in nature in Thailand, they are poached in Burma for this kind of camps. The whole setup is also very commercial, for everything (pictures with the elephants, let children lifting on the trunk etc.) should be added. We gave the Guide on our smooth a generous tip that was gratefully accepted elsewhere in Thailand, but here we were toegesnauwd that it was not enough. If you love animals, you can bypass this camp better.
