Ayutthaya Elephant Village Reviews & Ratings
Wow, what a stunning place. Loads of places to eat and purchase snacks. A chance to enjoy a ride on the river while taking in the magnificence of the surroundings. There is also an entertaining theatrical show which depicts the history of the Ayutthaya kingdom. Definitely worth more than one visit. Also the kids would love it.
Here you can buy delicious food from Thai women hawkers, just follow the sounds of “ขา”. You can also buy souvenir T-shirt’s here that are so fashionable that you are guaranteed never to wear them again. Your Thai hosts will however force you to wear it for the vast majority of your remaining stay in Thailand because it’s “cute”.
Well, about the floating market is not true. You pay 200 to have a tour by boat of 10min then you are allowed to walk around the market. Just tourist and no locals. Restaurant be careful with your bill, check what you ordered and make yourself the calculation.
Please don’t come here and support the elephant riding! The elephants kept here have no shade or soft bedding, and very limited food (just a couple leaves on the floor), kept in small concrete pens and are provided with no mental stimulation. The Thai elephant riders carry sharp metal hooked blades to hit and control the elephants with. Elephants have chains on their feet so they can’t move- even the babies.
Small place compared to other floating markets. The boat ride was nice but very short. You don't get to purchase anything while on board the boat. There was a live show but no Showtimes or schedule displayed. Shops won't lower the prices of items even if you purchase many items! There are a few shops that sell food and a designated dining area. Nobody accepts credit cards here!
