Incredible! A once-in-a-lifetime experience! Maesa has a show where elephants throw darts at balloons, play soccer, draw amazing watercolors, and interact and play with the spectators. Bring lots of cameras!

Here they use chains on the Elephants and those horrible seats for people to ride in. I also saw the guides with pic like devices to use on the elephants. Go to Patara Elephant Sancutary. NONE of this happens there.

these are tour agents who organise tours to elephant parks. they will arrange transport to the site and you get to ride the poor elephants. you need to pay for the entrance and a separate fees for riding the elephant.

It was fun to watch the elephants performing dancing, playing basket ball and soccer as well as picture drawing. The elephant ride was also a new experience. However, really felt sorry for these animals in captivity to do all these things.
