  Elephant Ride

Well, this picture showed what we DIDN'T get to do....the elephant ride. Each creature can take 2 persons on its back, and I think you can get onto it easily....the elephant will stand beside an elevated platform (the "elephant station", as you can see in the picture) and tourists can climb on top.

These animals are local Thai elephants, traidtionally used for logging and transporting the fallen trees. I think these creatures are smaller than their Chiang Mai counterparts (I heard that the Chiang Mai elephants are bigger).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
