Had a really nice time elephant riding and feeding the elephants, but don't make the mistake of purchasing the DVD of your elephant ride, it cost 1000 baht (around £20) and we got home to watch it, only for it not to play at all, we tried it in several DVD players and all was the same result, I've emailed...

Elephant Village - is an amazing nature reserve, which can without exaggeration be called unique. Not only there is a contact person with elephants - animals that are considered sacred in Thailand. In the village of elephants, these mostly elderly herbivores live in complete safety and earn a living for themselves and villagers. In addition, some of the money received... More

Good ride on the elephant, walked through the jungle as well as going through water. A great day. We had some professional photos done on the elephant & you can also get a photo with a tiger. Prices are very cheap.

When we arrived, the boys (aged 6 and 5) were a bit apprehensive about getting on an elephant. So they had time to feed the elephants and touch them, before a mahout lifted them onto the elephant's head for a photo. The elephant trek took us through a lake and the surrounding countryside, lasting 45mins. We then had a breather... More

Having read some of the other reviews here, I have to wonder if these people went to the same elephant park!

The ride on the... More
