We took about 1 hour elephant trekking and it was superb! The elephants were so lovely and adorable. Everyone was really friendly and the village was so peaceful.
First you can feed the elephants (cost a little more extra) and then you go to the ride. It was so exciting go through water with elephant:)
Right the beginning of the ride some guy took photos of us with the elephant (after the ride they sell those photos, I think the price was 400 baht).
The elephant trainer was nice. During the tour we stopped in the field for a while and he asked if wanted some pictures taken from us with the elephant with our camera. At first he didn't ask money from us for those pictures he took but in the end of our ride he showed 100 baht bill like he would have wanted us to give him that amount from the picture behind his boss back.
We felt that he was rude because we didn't ask him to take those photos. We thought that he just wanted to be friendly and that this was part of the ride.... But we gave him that 20 baht and that's it. He didn't say anything but we saw that he was angry.
After the ride we went to see how silk is made and after that they serve really good fresh fruits to us.
Elephant trekking is amazing once in a lifetime experience (for all ages). This was worth the money! :)
