This attraction leaves you feeling "ripped off", the prices charged for tourists are extortionate in comparison to locals. There are elephant rides but the elephants are badly treated by aggressive staff who use metal implements to hit the animals. The packages sold promise things which...More

The first impression was that this place was a bit too commercialised and man made We needed to buy tickets (THB 200 per person) to get in. We were then ushered to take a boat ride round the complex However after getting off the boat...More

1. Only foreigners must pay for entrance! It's normal for Thailand: Thai people pay 20 Thb, foreigner 200 Thb. But here... 200Thb for foreigners and free for Thais. They don't care you are working in Thailand, or tourist. You must pay because you are foreigner......More
