We have been to this elephant village before and it has been improved a lot since our last visit the elephant trek is very good and the elephant shows are good too. The elephants are well looked after as well

Perhaps not very nice to see that all the elephants are chained, including a newborn as well... You can buy few buckets of bananas at the same place, will cost you 100 Baht and you may feed them by your hands. I wouldn't suggest having a ride on elephants as there are a lot of religious sensitivities attached to this... More

On our way to Hutsadin Elephant Hospital we saw the sign Elephant Village and drove down there. Realized immediately that this was the wrong place. A very bad kept place! Continue a little further on the main road and you will come to Hutsadin, a totally different experience where the animals are taken care of in a fantastic way. Warning,... More

I have to say that this over priced entertainment was really quite sad. Baby tigers on very short chains, mock croc show, elephants chained up etc really don't do it for me. Wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend.

We were looking for hutsadin and was dropped off here. Immediately I felt something was wrong. A lady came over to offer elephant rides. The place is dirty, murky and overpriced. Thanks to my local call card, I called Hutsadin and discovered this is not where we wanna be. Saved the day and had a great time at the real... More
