Elephant Camp – Bathing with elephants in the Khwae Noi River (Thailand)

Categories: Travel reports, Asia, Thailand

Shortly after midnight we landed in Bangkok from Hong Kong today.


Our Bangkok Hotel

Since we are already picked up the next morning at 7 am for our tour, we quickly took a taxi at the airport and went to our hotel Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam.

Our day tour “Elephant Village, Tiger Temple, Bangkok & Ayutthaya”

For the next days in Bangkok we have booked the following excursion program via Tour with Tong:

The total price for these 3 days was therefore just under 390 €. For all these activities incl. private transfer, admissions and a German-speaking guide we find this a fair price.

Bathing with elephants in the Khwae Noi River

Today, the first thing on the agenda was bathing with elephants at the Mahawangchang Elephant Camp. The detailed travel report will be delivered, but we have already uploaded the pictures. If there are any specific questions about the pictures or this travelogue, please post a comment at the end of the post.

A group of monkeys

After visiting the elephant camp we went on to the tiger temple Wat Pa Luangta Maha Bua. On the way we stopped at a place where several monkeys gathered around a small water reservoir. This looked like her own small pool 🙂
