Having read some of the other reviews here, I have to wonder if these people went to the same elephant park! We didn't see any signs of the elephants being mistreated or unhappy, in fact, it was a case of enjoying a wonderful feel good day because the animals seemed to enjoy what they were doing. The ride on the... More

We visited the Elephant Village from downtown Pattaya (if you contact the village they will include downtown transfers as part of the entrance fee) and while it was a touch expensive (1200 bhat per person) it was a nice day out. Some of the Mahout's appeared a bit aggressive towards the elephants, which I'm not sure was necessary (maybe it... More

Elephant Village in Pattaya was just average. It isn't far out of town and you end up riding the elephants mostly on paved roads surrounding some nice condos with pools. It was good if you want an elephant ride experience and can't make it up to Chiang Mai. We did the combo package which I still think is the best... More

Elephant Village is not well-run or humane. The whole place feels like an amusement park- you walk through a food court and then wait in line to board an elephant like it's a roller coaster car. The 30 minute elephant ride is though a dusty and squalid "village". The mahout was obnoxious and kept repeating "Big, big tip for me...... More

Apparently, this is not a well-known place to visit but it's a real gem. There are at least 3 different options to choose from depending on your budget. We opted for the longest - and the most expensive - package and enjoyed every minute of the experience. BTW, the most expensive ticket is actually pretty cheap. It all starts with... More

The elephant ride took about 30 min-that was really nice and interesting. The things we didnt like were-they ask for money everywhere. Bought a ride- than the elephant "driver" ask for the tip. Than elephant show- to feed elephants money- photo with elephant-money. Elephant does a trick with you- you pay again. Other than the money issue- worth going
