Great experience give the elephant handlers a tip they live in poor conditions. The ride can get a bit bumpy so hold onto your seat

Got to ride the elephant for an hour in the village and into a lake. Had time to take pictures and fed the elephant. Cost was very reasonable and it was a very nice experience. Recommended.

This place is located at the end of Jomtien beach (not really Pattaya). It is always fun to walk on the back of an Elephant, but it is not really a wild place in the jungle and far from anyone dream of elephants in Thailand. The place a not well maintained, smells horribly bad and I am not sure if the elephant are well treated but the Thai guys seems to be a little bit rude with them... Better go see the elephants in Essean, in the country where there is some green. The village is dusty and looking more like Africa with no rice field or rainforest around. A pure tourist place, and overpriced too.

The huge animal has always fascinated humans. The way the animals are kept and the way the vvillage is maintained , it is commendable. They are looking after the elephants in a very professional manner.

Friends and I went to The Elephant village and it was the highlight of my trip. First time riding an elephant and definitely won't be my last. The elephants are well-trained and friendly. The trainer had the elephant pick me up in his tusk....wow! I'll never for get that as long as I live! I loved every minute of it. My advice, pictures, pictures, pictures! Take as many as possible. Have fun.
