This is supposed to be an elephant reserve and, once you are there, everything suggest that is just what it is. The animals seem well cared for and content. I was never, at any point, concerned that we were in danger from these giant beasts. The human entertainment is quite good too.

I tried to book for a visit for two people. I emailed days in advance and received a quick response. I tried to clarify how much it would be for me to go on an elephant trek and for the person who I was traveling with, who has a physical disability, to just see the show. The 'daily' show was...

Me and my Friend wanted to spend the morning session somewhere as our checkin time for hotel is 2pm. While exploring the nearby places we found this in the list and we are not sure whether we can visit without prior booking. To our surprise we were welcomed happily and greeted by friendly staffs. We cherished in the natural beauty... More

We came for an evening elephant trek with ox cart ride. The village is set inland and has a nice setting amongst local vegetation. They are well organised here with plenty of staff all very helpful. The elephants are magnificent though I would bare in mind your own body size if you intend to ride. The elephants are well trained... More

I took my son here to ride an elephant. We arrived without reservation because I was told by email that no reservation was needed. Once we arrived, I was shocked how expensive it was for a 30 minute elephant ride. Around $25 USD for each of us to ride. I was told we would go in the next group in... More

Pattaya Elephant Village was offered as an activity option at the Bangkok port of call during our Southeast Asian cruise. My husband and I, as well as our parents, were all excited to have an 'elephant experience' and see some of the countryside. What sounded like an immersive, activity-filled day ended up being a very manufactured, ingenuine, and cheesy tourist... More

I know this is not the PC activity to do but this was by far the best activity we did on our holiday. Firstly to hand feed the elephants to have a ride which lasted a good 45 minutes through forest and then on public roads. Our lunch was included traditional dancing a good day out.
