It was quite large in area. Some of the elephants are smaller that what I thought. I was told the Asian elephants are comparatively smaller in size than the African ones. But they... read more

There,s a lot to be said about never looking back in life and trying to re create the past. Ten years ago we took our son on this Elephant trekking trip at the very same place. It was amazing. Yesterday we returned with our 13 year old daughter to give her the same experience. Huge disappointment! The village looked tatty... More

It was quite large in area. Some of the elephants are smaller that what I thought. I was told the Asian elephants are comparatively smaller in size than the African ones. But they are so smart and cute. They can do things which need power, and they can do lot which need skills and techniques! It is a worthy place... More

The kids enjoyed feeding and interacting with the elephants and we also went on an elephant walk in the surrounding area. We all enjoyed it thoroughly. We also visited a silk 'factory' house and afterwards we had lovely fruits and drinks. It is a beautiful place and the people are truly friendly and helpful. I appreciated the cleanliness and attention... More

The Elephants are confined to little spaces underneath a roof, with chains restricting how far they can move. You can't help but feel the elephants aren't overly happy with where they are. I'm not sure if they obey because they're well trained, or if they're afraid of the consequences when disobeying. The trek/adventure itself however is something completely different. It's... More

Very good time riding elephants with my friends. The people are very nice that work there. You get bombarded by employees asking you if you want to do everything else. The guide was very nice and taught us about the elephants. I wish it was a little cleaner because people throw the bags for food all along the track, luckily... More

Just a short drive from Pattaya is the Elephant village and to spend a day here is like a dream come true. You will ride on the back of an adult elephant[and if your lucky like me] maybe get to sit on the elephants head and steer her yourself Amazing experience. You can buy food to feed her as you...

The elephants can play football, shooting ballons, dancing and money maker... You also can take a picture with them by paying 20 baht per person. Very recommended for all families especially for kids.

The elephant village, located quite far from the main city (an hours drive approx) is quite overrated I believe. Kids enjoyed the elephant ride but felt tired and bored as it was an hour long and the elephants had lots of fleas/ insects around them. I won't recommend it as a must do/ visit. It's ok if you have a... More
