    Went to India to ride elephants, as they banned to operate there ... I had to fly to Thailand over the execution of the will. Elephants are wonderful, they have such kind eyes, we touched them, petting, skated on them, some even managed to swim with him, then elephants staged show, dancing to the music. And more ... now at home I have picture frames kakashek elephant:) (doesn't stink).

    Take a taxi from Pattaya to Bangkok, we hope. Admission charges will not apply. Activities such as bungee jumping and go-karts. Elephants rode in 30 minutes. I would include a one-hour course is 10 minutes in 30 minutes. If you buy bananas, during feeding can do. You might also experience 1 times.

    Today this elephant village visited. Upon entry you can buy bananas and is almost an app in your hands pressed you for 100 bath fixed may keep. Also a hose should be located 100 bath for around the neck. The bananas you can argue an elephant upon entry on you is waiting. Self pictures may, but rather on the trunk of the elephant because that also costs 100 bath. At the ride on the elephant struck me that the elephant regularly a hefty, hefty read, hit with a hook. This hook he would used according to a Board with a very positive explanations about the used hook. Is, in my view, not necessary. At each component where you at true is you dead fun with outstretched hand to a tip asked. You give too little to their liking, to be the one and other in Thai called to each other. There is so little focus on the so-called reception of these elephants as on the site header. Everywhere is money asked. Of course, no obligation, but feel comfortable not. Especially if you have paid for more than 42 euro pp.
