Before I went on my trip to Thailand I researched places to visit and the Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo was a top priority. My only complaint was that as part of a tour group I didn't get to stay there long enough! We began our visit with a sumptuous buffet brimming with international cuisine before racing off to watch the antics of the very talented and incredibly adorable elephants as they played soccer, balanced on their heads and twirled hoops, then performed in a historical play featuring explosions, blazing fires and an abundance of sword-fighting! Next stop was to hurry to the next site were we viewed a daring yet funny crocodile wrestling show during which heads and limbs were placed in great risk for our amusement. Another show followed shortly afterwards with the chance to watch a stunning performance with traditional dancing and acrobatics. Then, minutes before boarding the bus, I was able to get a photograph with a snake wrapped around my neck and shoulders and then a photo whilst holding the tails of two very large and very alive (though sedated for safety reasons) tigers. I would certainly return to this place, but next time I will ensure I stay a great deal longer.
