Gigantic Ganesh
Dec 2019 • Couples
We drove here from Khao Yai National Park. We were there only visitors there apart from a family of devotees and a Buddhist monk waiting to give a blessing.
The two large statues are quite extraordinary indeed, although it was difficult to photograph them in the strong afternoon light, and the reclining Ganesh had some ageing scaffolding around much of the base.
We enjoyed walking around looking at the many other statues there.
Toilets available. Allow an hour or so.

A Visual Feast for Ganesh Fans
Feb 2016 • Friends
Having written about Ganesh, the elephant-headed deity (also called Ganesha) who is the son of the Hindu gods Shiva and Parvati, I was interested to see what a Ganesh park would offer. While Thailand is predominantly Buddhist, Ganesh is still very popular as a remover of obstacles. The Park has a giant Ganesh that is rather garish, as well as a very interesting set of 32 different forms of Ganesh, each with its own attributes. Visitors are invited to make offerings to each of them in hopes of receiving a boon. Other Ganesh images dot the park, and many are offered for sale. The park has some Buddhist trappings, but it is clearly a commercial enterprise that is designed especially for locals as indicated by the signs in Thai (very occasionally with a few of the key words in English). This Park is for earning income and has little of the intellectual characteristics of a museum. But it seems to be successfully meeting the spiritual needs of Thais and visitors from other countries in the region who revere Ganesh. We were happy to see the Park, but are unlikely to visit again.

Mix pot of Religious. Not for tourists.
Feb 2015
Mixed pot of religious for those who believe in Hinduism and Buddhism. Aim as religious center and tourism. Very crowd on weekend as local people comes to give their respects and merits to their deities.

Newly built. Not scenic. Not your travel destination.

Ganesha park in December
Dec 2014 • Family
Hi. We just spent xmas in Thailand, family of 5, kids aged 10 to 16. We first went to Aonang, I wrote a reveiw in that section too.

We went to Kanchanaburi from Bangkok thru an agency called Safarine. They pick you up and take you first to the kwai river bridge (nothing special), then to the water falls of the national park which name I forget: that's great. Ask them to skip the bridge and go there directly or organise another mean to go, lots of hotels offer to take you. The falls are beautiful. Prepare to spend at least 4 hours there. Either bring food (that you'll have to eat between N°1 and 3 cus the higher ones have monkeys and it is forbidden to bring food) or eat after you've been, there is a restaurant on the parking lot that serves phad thai, delicious.

Hike all the way to the 7th fall. Stop at the 6th if you're not fit or have young kids. They walk back down and stop to any fall that takes your fancy. You can swim in most of them, N°4 or 5 maybe, I am not sure but you'll find it, has a rock turned into a slide, it is great fun.

Safarine then took us to raft on the river. The scenery is beautiful but the rafting is very very slow, nothing to be excited about.

Then they take you to the hot springs when the temperature cools down, it is very nice and cosy.

At the end of the day we'd asked them to drop us off at Ganesha park. Do go there, unless you do not care for animals or unless your kids are either under 8 or very shy. If you like adventure, are fond of animals and nature, are fit, go go go !

You have a nice informal dinner with the other guests, are given a few recommendations and then go to sleep because the next day starts at 7:30

The rooms have very minimum comfort: bring a sleeping sheet, they have blankets and pyjamas (long sleeves, legs) cus it get a little chilly at night. Mosquitoe repellent, of course, towels, and ear plugs: they ahev lots of pets and cats miawl all night in hope of being let in. There is no hot water in the shower and no toilet paper: you wash after you've done your business... Food is great, though. The scenery aroudn the room is breath taking. People are very friendly. The "park" is owned by François, a French guy in his 60s. Some of his staff speaks French, I don't know how much English they have. Most of the guests are French speakers.

François introduces you to his "mahouts" = the guys who handle the elephants, and to the animals themselves. You learn to feed them, and learn anything you'd like to know cus François is an expert.

You then get on the elephants, but not like the pictures you've seen of tourists sitting on a chair that's been put on the animal's back, no, you get on the elephant's bareback.

You go for a nice stroll and then go in the river: that's extremely great fun but can be a little frigthening for kidsn especially if they do not swim well. Our 10 year-old had no problem at all but a lady's 9 year-old son was moaning and crying the whole time.

You go on having a little tour, stop for lucnh and go back swimming, still with the elephants of course.

The elephants seem to be having a lot of fun and are actually quite sweet to be around. It is a wonderful experience.

Wear long pants (but light ones, it is around 30°c in December), flip-flops and a TShirt that you do not mind binning ! Wear sunscreen and caps, but throw your caps on the florr before going in the water. Some of the mahouts take pics and give you a CD before you go so you don't need to bring your camera.

We only stayed one day but you can stay two days if my review sounds attractive. Have fun !
