elephants

I was wondering if anyone can help. We are going to Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Cambodia and Vietnam. I would love to do an elephant ride or trek. Has anyone done this in these countries. can you recommend a good place to do it.

There is the elephant sanctuary which is a great place. You do get to interact with the elephants but from my understanding you are no longer able to ride them ( which is a good thing)

It is more for elephants who have been saved and the people who work there are very passionate - feeding time is awesome.

Most people will use a driver to get there which we did

If you are going to Ankor Wat in Cambodia, there are elephants for riding.

You are not allowed[thankfully] to ride the elephants. It is a 2 hour journey from Kuala Lumpur.

If you want to ride then head to a country that does not consider animals so highly as they do at the sanctuary.
