I really didn’t enjoy this part of the city sightseeing tour. The baby elephant, as with the other larger elephants, were chained to the ground with very little to no room for movement. It was horrible. We didn’t ride the elephants.
The guards had what appeared to be a sickle that they would use to knock on the top of the heads of the elephants in order to direct the elephants movements. .
The monkey show at the same place was also sad. The poor little monkeys are so “colonized” and “enslaved” that they would hand the leash to their handler when they finished with a particular act. They even thanked us for tips.
Be prepared for getting asked to pay for everything! Taking a picture with the Perot using your camera. To buy for food to feed the elephants with fruits the spot provides. The guides/handlers. Everything. Even the picture which they involuntarily take. This we experienced from the sidelines as we were part of a tour group which included elephant trekking.
If, like me, you hate to see suffering, don’t go there.
