They suffer, they are hurt; visit them in sanctuaries , free and in forest. Do not ride them! They do not deserve it ,THIS MIGHT STOP IT!! Search on internet about places like these. there are ethic elephants visits, NO RIDING! Against it !

If you are looking for an elephant ride, this park has them. They also do a show with the baby elephants where you can feed them bananas. There is an area where they teach you to make papaya salad and you can also have a ride in an ox cart.

We arrived at the park and we're presented with a mother and baby elephant performing tricks including painting a picture and standing on their back legs. It was only whilst watching for a while that I realised the handlers were digging a sharp spike into the ears of the elephants to make them perform. After I noticed this it seemed... More

Went there thinking it was going to be something different. Poor creatures, the handlers have no care for these majestic animals, they are constantly abused and beaten to please the tourists. This is wrong on so many levels I was quite upset when we left and did not enjoy the experience at all. The poor monkey was chained up and... More

ツアーで行きました。1人600バーツ、15分でした。待つこともなく、非常に楽しかったですが、15分で十分かと思います。 写真もとってもらえますが、390バーツ払うと貰えます。チップは象使いに払いました。 600 Baht per person for 15min to ride an elephant. And you can get the photo on it by paying 390Baht.

We went here after another Trek got canceled and I have to say I was disappointed and a little put off. Our guide was very nice and did genuinely seem to care for his elephant whose name was Lily. However, the overall conditions and the fact that the elephants were tied up was a put off. Maybe this is normal,... More

The guide was especially enthusiastic showing a real passion in what she does. A good start. My highlight was the elephant massage which I've never had before although many massages by humans. The trek was awesome, riding on an elephant felt regal. Later was the best part. Natural Beauty absorbed on the bamboo water rafting in Phang Nga. This tranquil... More
