Elephants give lifts and rides

The elephants paint, play soccer, basketball and give rides and lifts.. It was very busy and full of Chinese tourists so there was a lot of shoving.

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.

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.
