Khao Yai National Park and Elephant Ride Day Trip from Bangkok
Reviewed by: Lenka K, Czech Republic, August 2014
Pick up on time. Very nice driver and tour guide. First stop was at the market (outside Bangkok) where we could see so many new fruits and vegetables (and also meat - "Mickey Mouse" from jungle). At this market our tour guide bought mangosteens for us as a dessert after lunch. Next stop was at some private ranch where we watched (and participated a little) how is thai food cooked. Then we had an amazing lunch (one of the best meels I had in Thailand) and mangosteens as a dessert (wow - awesome fruit!!!). Next stop was at the waterfall. Nice walk to it through the jungle and very nice waterfall. Last stop was at a hotel resort with elephants. This elephant safari is (as this whole tour) kind of touristy but much better then I've seen on Koh Samui island. It was cca 30 minute ride on an elephant, including a walk in a river. In the end our "elephant driver" got off and we could try sitting on the elephant's head while the driver took our pictures and video.

Fantastic trip. Visiting local market which was interesting seeing different fruits and veg and live animals, frog etc. Then a lovely lunch at the Ox farm and then the best of all Elephant riding and this made our holiday
Would highly recommend

We had so much fun. The driver picked us up at our hotel perfectly on time, along the way we picked up one other couple and we drove to the fruit market about 45 minutes away. After that, ox ride and a great lunch outdoors, our tour guide Peter was very nice. LAst stop was the water fall and elephant ride, which was an amazing experience!! Thank you Peter :-)

The tour guide was awesome, and it was a great experience. We didn't stop any pit stops for commission buy. Our group was tiny and the whole trip was the best experience in Thailand.

This was a fantastic day, and we managed to do so much in the time that we had - the elephant ride was the absolute highlight. The guide was very warm and knowledgeable and was able to give us a lot of background to every one of our activities. Really recommend this trip, such a fantastic way to spend a day away from the pollution and noise of Bangkok.

Our guide was beyond excellent! From the hotel pick up to hotel drop off, our family enjoyed the whole day. This tour was the highlight of our trip. My two girls (8 and 20) had the time of their life. The local markets were both full of sights and smells! The ox cart ride and local lunch was very enjoyable but the elephant ride through the jungle and river was beyond compare. The elephants seemed well cared for and the mahouts were friendly and caring. A definite repeat experience!
