Spending time with some of nature's grandest creatures at ElephantsWorld, a center that is firmly focused on animal welfare, sustainability, and ecology. Established in 2008, this non-profit organization acts as a sanctuary for sick, old, disabled, abused, and rescued elephants, who enjoy a decent quality of life here. Feed them, wash them, and help with their care: the elephants here are treated with respect, having been taken out of poor conditions elsewhere. Staff will inform you as to the behavior of elephants in the wild, the dangers facing them, and what can be done to protect them.

  • A welcome experience after the bustle of Bangkok. I have a soft spot for elephants and getting to interact with them up close was amazing. I visited during the off season so there weren’t that many...

  • A magical experience. Interacting with the elephants so closely, especially swimming with them, was very special. Our guide was knowledgeable and welcoming. The booking process was really easy too, including the private car transport from Bangkok to the sanctuary. I will never forget this place and hope to return one day. The animals were obviously well cared for and mahouts used positive reinforcement in all their interactions with them. I hope more people hear about this place and support their great work.
  • I loved swimming with the baby elephants! Our guide was really a character, a super funny guy. The lunch was good. The elephants were treated very well here. This place is famous in Thailand and it might be the best elephant sanctuary in Thailand. A "must do" activity!
