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

My family and me went there last July 6, 2015 as an optional trip and we paid 300Baht each ( we were six in the group) thru our tourist guide and he did not tell us that we have to give tips immediately upon alighting the...

I would recommend the 5 activity program package for this trip. On arrival you get to,see the elephants - you can even get a kiss from a baby elephant! With the 5 program package you: You go for a ride in an ox cart, see how silk is made, go on the boat across the big lake, ride and elephant... More

Pattaya Elephant Village was an amazing experience. I never knew elephants were so intelligent. At the village we were able to buy bananas for a few dollars to feed the elephants. We also had LOTS of time to take pictures feeding the elephants. There are 2 shows put on daily which show the elephants doing tricks, how they can do... More

Being only 30 minutes from Pattaya this is a worth while visit. For 40$A they pick you in air conditioned buses includes a chance to feed the Elephants go on a 40 minute ride and a excellent meal. The people are most helpful and go out of the way to assist if you have any back problems during ride. Great... More
