“A nice afternoon with the Elephants”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

We would love to meet these amazing animals in there natural environment, Yes! However, this place seems to take good care of them and the elephants look calm. We enjoyed the 45mins ride with a lovely staff member who could speak proper English and took good care of us. Yes, they wi try to sell you goodies and picture but nothing bad regarding the touristic attraction and their business. They will not force you and keep smiling at you. A nice Attraction and much more better than finding an elephant on the parking facing the floating market; between plenty of tourists and car!

“$$$ Boring $$$”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

What a waste of time and money. My family and I thought this would be a nice afternoon riding elephants and interact with nature. This turned out to be nothing more than a money grab. We payed for a 1 hour ride and got a 30 min ride around a dusty field where we were bombard by the operators to buy nik nak's and trinkets. Stay away.

“Elephant show”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The elephant show was wonderful..Very well trained elephants. Kids will enjoy it a lot.
But even while watching the spectacular show, what was going in my mind was the torture and pain those animals had to go through to during their training.
