I have had an elephant trekking and after that I found my jeans dirty with rubber tree latex stains. Stuff wasn't very cooperative about that. Hardly I've got from them 500 baht for cleaning my jeans. The total price (1600 baht) is quite high for 40 min elephant ride (most of it on the road), some fruits and a lousy... More

Super fun, but why do the elephants need to be chained when not in use as rides? Spider monkey was fun but the handler hit him when he misbehaved. I tried to teach the handler to treat the monkey like a baby and "redirect" but he seemed not to listen. Cute bunny enclosure and meerkats too. Oxen. Deer. Birds. Bunnies.... More

If anyone can enjoy elephants easily, the place is in Pattaya. Enjoy 30 minutes ride on the elephant. The price is 600 Baht per person.

It's a great experience riding an elephant thru the jungle and then watching his/her caregiver give it a nice bath afterwards. You can adopt one of these lovely creatures if you are so inclined to help them and there are some wonderufl photo op's available

Don't get me wrong I know some people will not agree with these type of places and I guess that is there view. My view is I come every time I'm here to experience something quite magical with these wonderful animals and I love every minute of it.

I'm an animal lover so I don't like animals to be caged or to see them in a zoo, let them live their natural life so do these 100s of elephants in Thai zoos

Elephant ride with activity and Thai cultural show is the main attraction of this spot... but everything is overpriced... if you are not an elephant lover... miss this spot

Fun and friendly elephant handlers. Cultural show afterwards was better than expected and you can take photos with performers afterwards

We arrived and could buy bananas to feed the elephants. You could pay 100 Bhat to have a photo of an elephant pick you up by his trunk. The elephant ride can either be 45 mins long or 1 1/2 hour long, we did the 45 min which was long enough for me as not very comfortable but it is... More
