"Cruel Elephant Treks" Excursions Tip by yozza2005

Excursions, Phuket: 24 reviews and 18 photos

Taxi drivers near Karon will try and take you to Elephant treking.
From what i saw it was cruel and damn right wrong. Thai workers whipping the elephants, it made me want to go and hit them for doing that!
It is disgusting and in some instances the elephants have been drugged before you ride them.

Unique Suggestions: Go to Thai Boxing, avoid the elephant treks

Fun Alternatives: Thai Boxing

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
