This trip was great. You start off by feeding a bunch of them and then see a really cool show. where the elephant play football, paint pictures, etc. My only "Duh" comment about the show is that it was held every hour and it's 5 elephants doing the exact same thing so everyone can see it from where they are...

Can't really decide whether to like it or not, as I'm torn between being amazed by what human-like things these great beasts can do and being horrified by what inhuman things these beasts endure in the hands of man. Such power and yet such gentleness. Intelligent enough to be taught many skills, but not to rebel against those who mistreat... More

Up on arrival you’re met by around 15 elephants all crammed in a little pen, once you've got over the initial "OMG look at the cute elephant" and you've had your cheesy photo taken with elephant, you take a step back and actually realize the horrific conditions in which the elephants are kept. They are surrounded by a mass of... More

We visited as a half-day tour (with C.M. Carnival Tours) out of Chiang Mai. When we arrived in the park-like area we first saw elephants having a great time bathing in the little river with their mahouts. We then came across other elephants with the big wooden crates on the back, carrying tourists around a track (we were not there... More

Not my first visit, but by far the most enjoyable. Feeding elephants, watching the bathing, interaction before their show was a highlight. Elephants are happy. After the show i purchased an elephant painting on embossed paper, signed and stamped. It looks fabulous in the kitchen.

When my wife told me the price I was saying no way. But you know who wins and so as a family of 6 and $350 later it was well worth it. Elephants painting was incredible. Of course you get a ride on the elephants and the show they put on is ok but your in Thailand so enjoy.
