Pattaya Elephant Village



 

What :

The Pattaya Elephant Village is a non-profit retirement center for working elephants that, due to age or injury, can no longer perform the arduous labor needed in the jungles of Thailand.

Guests on luxury tours of Thailand have the opportunity to watch 90-minute training shows where the sanctuary demonstrates techniques used to train and care for the elephants, and attendees get the chance to feed and care for the animals.

The elephant ride and walking tour are also a popular way to see Pattaya’s surrounding nature.


When :

The training show starts around 2:30 p.m. daily, and multiple treks are available at varying times.

The monsoon season is light here, and guests on Thailand tours can find booking for accommodations easier and cheaper during September and October. The high season for the area runs from the end of October through February, and guests planning their luxury Thailand tours should book in advance if they wish to visit during these months.


Where :

Just a few miles east of the coastal city of Pattaya, The Elephant Village is easily accessed by private car.

Pattaya, Thailand rests on the East coast of the Gulf of Siam about 50 miles from the capital of Bangkok.


Who :

The Elephant Village is a special treat for nature lovers and philanthropists alike. The elephants are extremely well cared for in this non-profit sanctuary that’s run entirely on donations and visitor fees.


Appropriate Attire :

Dress for a hike if you’re going on the nature trek, and closed toed shoes are recommended.

Jason & Cindy Burgess - October 2013

My family and I took a two week long tour of Thailand with Easy Tours of Thailand and the trip truly could not have been any better.

Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. In addition to offering a unique and local perspective throughout the tour, we were completely at ease with her and felt that she truly wanted to make our experience the best it could possibly be.

The private driver and vehicle that was set up for us was also excellent. I knew prior to our trip that it would probably be best to reserve this type of service during our travels, but I had no idea how invaluable this ended up being for us. He maneuvered through crowded streets and unexpected roadblocks with ease, and knew which areas to avoid driving through and efficient alternative routes. To top it off, the vehicle was always very clean, air conditioned, and there were cold drinks waiting for us after visiting a site.

The tour itself was completely tailored to what we wanted to see and what our interests are with assistance from their U.S Sales Office prior to arriving in Bangkok. They provided a day by day itinerary for us which was great, but the best part was having the freedom to change things as needed, or make unexpected stops to explore, as the tour unfolded.

I would definitely use this company again if we go back to Thailand.
