It was a nice experience. But the traffic jams ruined a lot. We spent a lot of time at the van waiting to get back to the city. The experience with the 11 elephants On site is quite unique and worthwhile. We were joking though, that we paid to do some labour as we cut down banana trees, prepare elephant food, and bathed them! I thought it was funny and this could be easily be marketed as a “day in the life of an elephant caretaker” activity.

It's a hell of a car (6 hours total round trip), but hanging out with the elephants is fun. The monitor is very nice and we can interact a lot with the elephants (always with respect). As for the driver, very professional and friendly. Recommended if you have time to spare in Bangkok.

Fantastic trip! The driver was on time, first we went to the famous bridge and we were told some facts about the place. Then we went on to the elephants sanctuary. On the way we learned some things about Thailands culture, the agriculture and about the location, which is pretty close to Myanmar. The tour in the elephants sabtuary was fantastic. We fed them, drove to a field with banana palms to get more food for them. Then we went to the river, we helped them with their mud bath and also cleaned them up again later on. We also made special food for the old lady “Watermelon” and fed her, so cute. We took a lot of great pictures and had a wonderful trip.
