We took the "extraordinary elephant day tour" and what great day it was.
Our driver Joe was waiting for us in our hotel foyer right on time at 7am.
Our first stop was after 1and half hour at the floating market.
As we were the only 3 on this tour this day Joe acted as a bit of private guide.
Another hour or so Joe stopped and picked up another guide (Bo) for the rest of our trip.
Next stop was the bridge on the river Kwai. Bo explained the significance behind the bridge and it's use during the war and today.
Lunch was next, while not great it was good enough for us.
Next came the highlight and the main reason for the tour, elephants!
First it was a change into swimwear for bathing with the elephants.
30mins of frolicking in the water with elephants is worth the price of this tour in itself.
After the bathing comes a ride on an elephant for a short trip through the forest ( be careful of mud puddles).
Sadly the day comes to an end with a 2and half hour drive back to Bangkok.
Overall as I said at the outset, " it's all about the elephants"
