  • Sign up at 1,100 Baht through travel agencies, participated. Hotel elephant village van car came to pick me. Picked up by local staff since before pick up time waiting in the lobby, it seems to be finding a person "elephant? "And may not hear and understand. Identified so that staff had the room number note if I happened to see. Facilities to explain the tour schedule while showing the pictures in English. Is advisable to buy a banana into the bag at that time (elephant feeding) at 100 Baht. I think with your hands directly bananas to elephant, elephant many times want because children were absolutely delightful. Will took some photos with my camera lifted in the elephant's trunk, and then brought to an elephant. 100 Baht tip is required here as well. Only those who want to can participate. If children in the base two-seat ride tour after that, but in the third person seems!. In my case alone was rode alone. Then walked the five minutes in the image seen in the photo on the elephant nature to enjoy I felt, but in fact in the garden of like go 20 minutes through the streets, walking in the forest and then a flat 20 minutes along the pond end. Restores the original garden in a battered Jeep along the way explain aspect of silk production at the bus stop. Sun burn hot and not so convey to your image in a gesture lent an umbrella. Down when chips was passed to the image your 100 Baht. Fruit to eat while watching a video at the end, will be showing a traditional show of Thailand. Being urged to sell DVDs, back and forth, to take photographs with the dancers will put the chips, but refuse too insistently do not. Rode the elephant just like in other parts of Thailand is there, but I enjoyed more. I would enjoy the sophisticated facilities such as inconvenience not Japan Japanese and Japan is not the tour admission and idea, with a little extra money crushpad in Japan a valuable experience.

  • strolling over an elephant is pretty impressive as well as standing on top of a seemingly docile animal makes us wonder if this kind of tourism is worth eslaving the animals... while it is good to be ...  more »
  • Rode on an elephant 1:00 Slow, measured. In some places (on a steep uphill or downhill) scary. Were 2.5 years with a child-he's not being impressed, but not frightened, but feed the elephants bananas he liked:) package bananas here sell for 100 Baht. On site you can still feed the goats (food for 20 baht per piece), photographed with birds. The second time I will not go, but once you can go and see, no regrets. Tickets bought at the Agency in Pattaya. In the price entered the shuttle from the hotel by taxi. Look, how much is the ticket to the park itself is the same price, only without the transfer.
