We chose Phang Nga Elephant Park due to it being an elephant rescue and sanctuary. I wanted to support ethical treatment practices toward elephants rather than watching them be tied up and forced to perform. The elephants appeared relaxed, happy and healthy. The elephant that...More

A very informative and incredible day at this park. It's more expensive than others in the area and I was hesitant as I have been to so called Sanctuarys before, and it's been far from a sanctuary. This place exceeded all my expectations. The elephants...More

More of an elephant sanctuary. It's obvious these elephants are well taken care of. So if you're looking for an elephant park in Thailand that's also ethical then you need to check them out.

It's included in the package and it's only about a 20 minutes trek both way. You can also walk beside the elephant if you don't want to ride it.
