We found ourselves at this establishment randomly because our Tuktuk driver suggested it and we had some time before we left Chiang Rai. Chiang Rai was incredible in every way except for this place. We immediately felt uncomfortable when we noticed the crocodiles getting jabbed...More

This place is not a safe place! They had an activity for the kids to feed a baby tiger. Which I didn’t think is a problem since it’s a baby (we went there based on bad recommendation of a taxi driver). Before I knew it,...More

The smaller elephants & lion cub were chained. Monkey was made to wear a skirt, all for visitors to pay & have a pic with them. Bigger elephants will take visitors for rides. This is animal exploitation! Sick & cruel place!

Let me begin by stating that I *loved* my visit to Chang Puak Camp, where I rode the elephant Banni (sp?) into a river where we bathed together, and I got to brush her and sit on her trunk, which was incredibly exhilarating--believe it or...More

It was not all that exciting, we only stayed for the elephant ride. Also be warned if you want to take photos of the baby animals, u WILL be asked to pay to take a photo.

Do not recommend. Our taxi driver suggested it - $3000 Baht per person for the market and up to $5000 to include the animal shows. The water is pretty dirty and polluted, but it’s a cool experience to ride the boat around to the different...More
