“Interesting but not natural”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

I like elephants and always enjoy to see them. My visit here was no exception and it is interesting but I have to say I felt a bit sorry for the elephants and think they could make life a little bit more natual and enjoyable for them, and people would still come to see these amazing animals.

“Enjoy the shows, but don't feed elephants on the streets”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Elephant shows have been the staple of tourist shows for decades. They are all enjoyable. But if you see the elephants on the street where vendors are trying to get you to buy food to feed them, don't. It only encourages these illegal activities. The city is trying to get elephants off the streets back into their natural setting. Besides it creates a traffic jam, not to mention people jam.

“DON'T MISS THE AYUTTHAYA BUS TOUR from Bangkok and stopping at Bang Pa-In Summer Palace”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

We stopped at the Samphran Elephant Grounds in Nakhon Pathom and we took advantage of the opportunity to ride the Elephants again. They had perhaps fifteen or twenty elephants, most were with their mahout and dressed in colorful costume and each elephant was equipped with a riding seat. Also there was a baby elephant that was very playful with the vistors and it had an enormous appetite for banana’s and sugar cane sticks. Followed with a delicious luncheon cruise on the river back to Bangkok.
