My favourite experience from my trip! We got to feed all the elephants right up close and get friendly and the whole time the guides would helpfully give info and facts about them. The elephants are completely free roaming but you feel safe the whole...More

This is the perfect example of how tourism could actually be a good thing. I wanted to interact with elephants without riding them or seeing shows and stumbled upon the sanctuary page online. After short consideration i booked an afternoon trip. The whole process was...More

I only booked day prior but if you can book further ahead, I guess you get the day you exactly want (probably important if you are a bigger group too) I went in the morning and it was fantastic but imagine it would be same for afternoon session. Enjoy, it is a wonderful experience!

I depends on the mode of transport but I’m guessing of you got a car/taxi it would take about an hour. Cost will be maybe £40 each way.
You can get the bus from the airport to Pattaya which takes about 1 1/2 hours (for something like £5 each way each) and then get the free transport from a pick up place. I think it cost us around £50 each for entrance and that included pick up from Pattaya.
We’re going back to Thailand in Aug and we’ll be going here again as we loved it so much.
