Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo, Nakhon Pathom

(170+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Ride on the back of an elephant at Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo, or view one of the daily shows featuring these gentle giants playing soccer and reenacting historical battles. The zoo allows you to get up close to the creatures and feed them fruit and sugar cane, and during the breaks between shows you can ride them around the local garden. Catch one of the crocodile shows to see trainers wrestle and play with the reptiles. The zoo houses a small collection of other animal species, including twin Bengal tigers, and lets you take pictures with them for an extra charge. Note that multiple visitors have reported less than desirable conditions for the animals here; if you're concerned about this, you may want to research the latest reviews or consider visiting a facility that focuses on conservation rather then entertainment.
