VERY rude staff, only time they smile once you give them the tips they asked for, you get asked 3 times :):):): again only time they want to take your picture is once you give them their tips s stupid, staff should not rely on tips as this trip is not even cheap 1600 for 30-40 minutes elephant ride ,

Wow... It was my first time to touch an elephant! It was awsome ha ha ha, but ky girl was a little scared. Overall, it was a very nice experience and less costly too. A few minutes from where we stayed.

It seems this is no longer a place of refuge for the elephants but a commercial attraction that lost its x-factor. Where it used to be quaint and for a good cause, it's now run down and hurried. Very sad, I will not be able to go again as this is against what I believe is good for those animals....

Elephant trekking was fun and we spent there a nice two hours (we were a little dissapointed that the most of the trekking was on the road for cars). However despite the high price (1600 baht per person) for 45 minutes trekking+dance+fruits+transport from/to hotel, almost everyone demanded a tip (approx. 100 baht) for services we didn't ask for such as...

We visited the elephant village with the combination package in the afternoon. Upon arrival, we were met with a friendly guide and met with the elephants who looked well treated. The elephant trek was a wonderful experience, along with the peaceful raft journey. The ox ride was interesting especially if you enjoy oxen breaking wind every 100 meters making it... More

Elephant trek is great with children. Guides have very basic English skills, but they trip is good. It seems the turist activities contributes to the housing of the locals. Elephant looks quite ok, but birds and large cats looks a bit sad as in most zoo's in asia

Went for hour treck through jungle and in to the lake. The elephant rider would then let you ride on the head if you wanted to. My daughters loved this experience. You could buy food for 100 baht to feed them on way round. The rider also took photos of you plus their own photographer. A tip to the rider... More
