    DO NOT GO HERE

    This place was awful! They hurt the elephants and use their pain as a way to guide them and make them do what they want. This is not a sanctuary, but a for profit monstrosity.

    Awful

    Elephants are chained and beaten to perform tricks, this is not a sanctuary but a circus, by going you are just promoting and encouraging cruelty to elephants

    Cruel

    The elephants are not happy it's clear they are showing signs of mental stress. The Mahouts are using weapons.

Additional Information

Introduction

Pattaya Elephant Village is a not-for-profit elephant sanctuary located in Pattaya in the Thai Province of Chonburi. It was originally used to train elephants to perform labor, but has now become a famous tourist destination. The elephant village was established in 1973 to provide a safe place for former working elephants that have been injured or fallen ill. Visiting the elephant village is not only a near-spiritual experience, but an act of charity, as visitors’ entrance fees go towards providing for the elephants both now and in the future.
