Animal concentration camp. Elephants hit with sharp sticks and chained up. Don’t support this establishment.

The Elephant and cultural shows were superb. The price of entrance ticket for foreigners was high than for the nationals.

Horrible experience, saw Elephants feet chained together after being beaten with sticks so tourists can ride them.

This place was awful! They hurt the elephants and use their pain as a way to guide them and make them do what they want. This is not a sanctuary, but a for profit monstrosity.

Elephants are chained and beaten to perform tricks, this is not a sanctuary but a circus, by going you are just promoting and encouraging cruelty to elephants

Did this experience as part of a holiday excursion off a cruise ship, thought it was going to be a bit Corney after the stage show, but very interactive had some photos done that weren’t over expensive. A worthwhile trip & experience 45mins from laem chanbang, port.

Elephant rides included, and pics of various animals don,t go if you are looking for an ethical trip.

The elephants are not happy it's clear they are showing signs of mental stress. The Mahouts are using weapons.

We got to this site an hour before closing. We took the 30 minute jungle elephant ride. Fed the elephant along the way. It's interesting, especially if you've never ridden an elephant. Would not be my top recommendation if you only have one day in Pattaya, but if you have time, yes this is a good stop on the tour.

Earlier, Elephant ride received bad review, but my recent visit, I experience lot of improvement. All the people shows Hospitality. They trained the elephant well, More than 10 people, involve in shotting video or taking photo for the entire elephant ride and keep the photo available for sale at the time of guest return back. But, few people only purchase their photos. Let the people start to purchase their photos atleast by showing appreciation of the employees.
