Rode with my parents. We rented 2 elephants with their owner/guide. We enjoyed the elephant ride basically. We were disappointed with their owners/guides because they are forcing us to give them tips or buy their souvenir items which were bracelets and necklaces made of beads....More

Elephants are treated very very questionably, seemed to have little stimulation or space, were chained around the ankles and hit with barbaric looking axes, handlers did not seem to have any love or respect for them. We left in tears.

Unintentionally visited the Elephant village as part of Damnoen Saduak floating market tour. The treatment of elephants is appalling. With a steel chain around one leg and a steel seating structure on their back the elephants are forced to carry tourists around a small path....More
