“More than just Elephants !”

Elephant Village Pattaya
Ranked #17 of 138 things to do in Pattaya
Attraction details

With the demise of the Teak trade most of Thailands working elephants became redundant overnight , this gave the Elephant farm the chance to show off the skills of the elephants to the public , you have a long ride on an elephant which is a weird sensation in it`self and also a sword fighting display by Thai actors who really make it " For Real " experience ! the swords are not fake but the real thing ! Sharp !!
The tour ends with a Thai meal and overall good value for money and it gives work to the Elephants and thier Thai workers ! Enjoy !

The elephant show was interesting but very touristy as was the cultural show there-- the kick boxing demonstration seemed like a joke

Got up close and personal with the elephants. Enjoyed feeding the elephants and a lovely ride too. Take plenty of fluids and clothes you dont mind getting a bit dirty/dusty.

I've visited here 3 times now as our three children all hit the age that they considered themselves worthy and able to ride the Elephants. The price has gone up quite a bit which is justified by them saying it all goes to the elephants.
It just gets the feel of being a little bit of a money spinner with the photographer and videographer following you around and giving you the hard sell when you arrive back.
Having said that the Kids love it, and there's a few interesting things to see on the way around.
There is a fish farm en route which you can feed the fish followed by a, supposedly, working silk worm farm.
It is worth a visit if your looking for a morning out and at a loss for something to do.
