So once in your life you have to ride an elephant... and while you're in Thailand you might as well. Located at the southern end of Pattaya on the Sukhumvit is the elephant village... really more of just an elephant pit stop... although it isn't clear that the elephants enjoy it or think about it that way. This is as... More

This place is good fun. There is a similar one of smaller scale near Bangkok as well but this is much better. You get up close and personal with elephants while they perform tricks.

I booked this tour, looking forward to seeing the elephants, however you don't get to see much of the elephants other than two of them chained up when you first arrive and then you go straight for the elephant trek. You can buy a bag of bananas for 100 Baht which i did to feed the elephants, although i'd like... More

On my bucket list for years and was well worth the wait. In a very rustic and natural setting. Didn't quite expect to start off downhill and into the river - but it was wonderful! Suggest the three hour package as the one to take. Includes the 50 minute elephant ride.

Booked an hour tour at this elephant sanctuary and it was a lovely morning. You can purchase bananas at the beginning in order to feed your elephant on the trip. The first part was fairly dull going through a forest that really looked like the grounds were not taken very good care of, but once back at the elephant park... More

Soooo much fun. Spend the afternoon on the back of an elephant. Feed them bananas (have to buy separately) but fun to feed as you walk. You walk through a river as well. So much fun!!

Amazing day. Such beautiful animals and people. The elephants are cared for so well and I was very proud to see the relationship between the guides and the elephants. The main tour guide was amazing and knew everything about everything. He taught us about silk, elephants, Pattaya, Thailand, the culture and knew the answer to any questions anyone had. He... More

You need a taxi to get to it but it's worth it we went on like a safari through this river and it was a good distance they took us not just a ten minute ride, we had a great time me and my son

We would love to meet these amazing animals in there natural environment, Yes! However, this place seems to take good care of them and the elephants look calm. We enjoyed the 45mins ride with a lovely staff member who could speak proper English and took good care of us. Yes, they wi try to sell you goodies and picture but... More
