The best experience of my Thailand trip. Although it is a 3 hour trip from Bangkok, it is still worth it. The location may be difficult to find for the foreigners. I joined a local tour to visit the place, which in my opinion is the easier way. Getting in water with elephants is magical and exciting. Never expected that one day I would get fully wet by the elephants. Remember to bring extra clothes because you are guaranteed to get all soaked up. Remember to wear contact lenses if nearsightedness is your problem because elephants may bring you into the water. If you wear glasses, they may get flushed away by the river.
It is a remarkable feeling standing next the these magnificent animals. You truly feel small. Gentle Giants. Sad that they've been using these animals for commercial use.
