If anyone can enjoy elephants easily, the place is in Pattaya. Enjoy 30 minutes ride on the elephant. The price is 600 Baht per person.

It's a great experience riding an elephant thru the jungle and then watching his/her caregiver give it a nice bath afterwards. You can adopt one of these lovely creatures if you are so inclined to help them and there are some wonderufl photo op's available

Don't get me wrong I know some people will not agree with these type of places and I guess that is there view. My view is I come every time I'm here to experience something quite magical with these wonderful animals and I love every minute of it.

I'm an animal lover so I don't like animals to be caged or to see them in a zoo, let them live their natural life so do these 100s of elephants in Thai zoos

We arrived and could buy bananas to feed the elephants. You could pay 100 Bhat to have a photo of an elephant pick you up by his trunk. The elephant ride can either be 45 mins long or 1 1/2 hour long, we did the 45 min which was long enough for me as not very comfortable but it is... More

We visited the park, and I took my son on an elephant ride. It was all going fine, when half way through the rider asked for a tip, when I offered him 200 baht, he shook his head, and asked for more! Made me a little cross, as we had paid 800 baht each for the ride. Would not go... More

Overall it was a nice one experience. Went for the full package including what they call "rafting" and dinner priced initially at 2600. The elephant ride is the best part and if I had to do it again will definitely not go for the full package as "rafting" ended up being a pond crossing while pulling a rope, and dinner... More
