  • We expect something great, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. We would not have known if we had not tried it. This is a money machine and not actually contact with elephants; buy bananas for elephants 100 baht, each person asks you the tip almost to the point you feel require (and they don't all say thank you), photo is for 200 baht, buy a scarf 300 baht and many other things... Of misleading advertising, the tour instead of 45 to 60 min shows on the brochure, in reality it lasts only 20 minutes, didn't show to end, so altogether instead of the 3:30 on the brochure that lasted only 1:30 to all broken. Who claim? It's not them who sell the service directly and increasingly they can barely speak English. It is our opinion, but we invite you to try anyway if you're curious. Latest information I deduce, it's morning where they have the most visitors, the afternoon they skimp a little people (we did)

Where to stay in Pattaya

Stay near Walking Street for lodgings closest to Pattaya's famous nightlife. Head up the coast to find quieter and bigger rooms in budget hotels or the more expensive resort-style complexes. You can also look in Soi Buakhao, where backpacker hostels and economical hotels offer easy access to main attractions, activities, and facilities.
