Absolutely loved every minute of our day. The car was very comfortable and the guide knowledgable and informative. We enjoyed our visit to the Bridge over the River Kwai and the WW2 cemetery but the highlight of the day was Elephants World. The elephants are so well cared for and in no way exploited for the benefit of tourism. There is s strict no ride policy and we were able to interact with them by participating in their daily routine from preparing food to feeding and then enjoying a mud bath and bathe in the river with them. It was one of the best experiences ever and I will never forget the wonderful hands on moments, from feeding and cuddling the baby and being jostled by her, popping a rice ball in the mouth of a 70 year old and massaging others all over with mud and then washing them down in the river. Wonderful gentle giants and so lovely to witness the mutual love between the elephants and their careers.
Really enjoyed the day, there was a bonus of a lovely top, making paper out of elephant poo which was brilliant and a really nice lunch. The staff were great, the only downside was the fact that there were quite a few staff ——- volunteers walking around and there was rubbish on the ground and all round where we were. I think the whole place needed a bit of a scrub down as everything was a bit grotty, and it would be nice to think that all the volunteers might spend a day gardening adding more greenery and doing a bit of landscaping. There are jungles nearby that are full of plants that could be transplanted, The grounds were quite bare, But overall still an interesting place.
Despite a very long 2 and a half hours in lots of traffic, our experience was amazing. From arrival to finish it was non-stop interactions with these amazing animals. They were sweat and gentle and playful. We were able to pet them, feed them, smear mud on them and us, and go in swimming with them. Food was wonderful. Staff we friendly and helpful and very kind to the elephants. A must for any vacation to Bangkok.
Such an incredible Day. So much learnt and such an amazing experience to be so close to these most beautiful animals. The work that these Sanctuary's do for the Elephants is awesome. To be part of it for a day was something I will never forget. Thank you for the photos and the memories you gave me.
This is a wonderful activity where you can get upclose to the elephants, wonderful animals. They are relaxed and treated well, as rescue elephants they have seen some bad stuff. It's quite a sight to stand right next to them, pat them, bathe them and give them treats.
