Elephant Nature Park is very popular. If planning to visit you would need to book well in advance.

I would also book now as have been reading so many stories of people missing out. We also booked many months in advance. :)

Very helpful.

Are there any other tours in Thailand that you’d recommend booking way in advance or are the rest pretty easy to get at a tour desk when in Thailand?

Thanks all

Elephant Nature Park is ridiculous. You will need to book well in advance. If you know your dates it would be wise to book ASAP.

Aside from ENP, which in high season can be booked-out for many weeks, you can arrange most other day tours last minute (day before) with your hotel/guesthouse or travel agents. And note there are many (many) other elephant parks within 1-2 hours from CM.

Are there other locations in Thailand you will visit? People on the Phuket forum often recommend booking Phuket Sail Tours trips in advance if you are travelling in the high season. In the low season play it by ear with the weather.

Chiang Mai, Krabi, Phi Phi, Phuket and Bangkok.

If you guys recommend any trips to do I would appreciate it! We’re in to pretty much anything so if there’s any you think may need to be booked in advance I’d love to know!

Thanks again.
