Riding an Elephant in Ayutthaya

Thai Elephant

Two tourists ride an elephant through the ancient ruins of Thailand’s ancient capital. Ayutthaya is about an hour or so to the north of Bangkok, and many tourists go there to explore the temples and ancient ruins and also to ride an elephant. However, animal activists say that the elephants are treated cruelly and shouldn’t be forced to walk all day on concrete in the hot blazing sun.

    Please avoid any activities involving elephants in Thailand, including in government supported care centers, see why;

    There no better place to see elephant than in a national park. There are a lot to choose from in Thailand;
