Elephant Village - Review
The Pattaya Elephant Village is a great place to interact with these funny animals. The elephants are extremely well trained and domesticated. They put up a grand show with the animals doing awesome tricks, stunts and being very cute in general.
You can choose to just watch the show or take an elephant safari. It is an amazing experience to travel with these majestic beasts, to really feel their strength and to observe their habits. There is also a “silk house” in the same premises where you can see handicrafts being made or even buy souvenirs to take home. If you take one of the more elaborate tours, they also serve a scrumptious buffet meal to satisfy the foodie in you.
The elephant village is a wonderful place for these elephants to stay in. Animals who have been working in circuses and events find a wonderful refuge in this sanctuary. In a way it is like a retirement home for the elephants. The volunteers and employees are able to pay for the upkeep of these elephants with the revenue that the tourism generates. So it is nice to know that while you are being entertained you are also helping a good cause.

I'm giving it 1 star for the elephant that I rode and not for the rider. Be prepaid that even when you have paid 1600baht to go to the elephant village and you get to ride the elephants the guy still wants a tip and when I gave him 20baht as thats all I had on me he push it back and said no give 100baht. He wasnt happy at all when I said that's all I had, he couldn't wait for me to get off the elephant. Also once the dancing show is over they ask if you would like to take photos with your own camera and then wont leave you alone until you pay them 100baht. Would I go here again or recommend it. NOPE!
Great experience of elephants trekking, but they said they will closed in future... 1000 baht for entrance fee only for elephants trekking. Well just remember buy some bananas and tips for the elephant guide. Else it depends to you want to give tips or not
shame full treatment (hitting etc) and blatant money grabbing, extortionate entry fees for 2 of us. Sorry to say this should not be allowed. Please DONT RIDE THE ELEPHANTS. What no one has said in the comments section, probably because they're not aware, but the elephants are "broken" in order for them to accept carrying you...it may appear a natural thing to do, you've seen TV where they move logs etc, but this is a barbaric practice. Go visit an ethical sanctuary if you want to be close, but dont ride them. Asking for tips and for sales of photos/videos is commonplace. be aware that if you are seen videoing as I was (I have a youtube channel) they will request a hefty fee.
