Elephant Haven

Reviewed By VM_Indy - Indianapolis, Indiana

We really wanted to have an opportunity to spend some time with elephants while in Thailand, but absolutely wanted to do it ethically without any harm to the elephants. We feel very comfortable that we found a great option. The mahouts at Elephant Haven really take great care of the elephants. We had an opportunity to play with them in the mud - they love mud on their backs to help cool down in the afternoon sun. Then we walked with them down the hill to the river and were able to swim with them. Time to clean off all that mud! Finally walked back up the hill with them to feed them an afternoon snack of watermelon and stalks. Being able to be that close to these majestic creatures to look them in the eye and see them interact together was awe-inspiring and a once-in-a-lifetime must do. They feel so serene and somehow wise. Would definitely recommend to all who want to support ethical elephant encounters.

Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum and Walking Trail

A memorial dedicated to the Asian labourers and Allied prisoners of war who suffered and died constructing and maintaining the Burma-Thailand railway during WW II.

Reviewed By Roberts69 - Northampton, United Kingdom

Firstly the museum is very good and very educational for anyone not knowing the full history and story of the Burma - Thailand Railway and the plight of the POW's and Civilians that were forced to build it. Made famous of late by the film "The Railway Man" this really is a museum and a piece of wartime history not to be missed. The Museum is open every day except Christmas Day from 9am until 4pm and admission is free. From the museum we took the trail down into Hellfire Pass. This was quite a climb down quite uneven steps and rather strenuous in the humid heat, but really made you think hard about the conditions the poor guys working to dig out this railway cutting had to endure. My Great Uncle was captured in Burma during WW2 and we are not sure if he was made to work the railway or not but he certainly endured being a PoW in this region and it just makes you think hard just how dreadful life must have been... Visit, remember and respect what went on in Hellfire Pass.

Sawadi Sai Yok Jungle Adventure

Reviewed By Guillaume C - Bangkok, Thailand

Thanks a lot to Seb and Sophie. They are really amazing people, it's beautiful to see some people who love animals and nature like them.
Really care about the elephant and they also have a few project for this beautiful animal who is not always in good condition in this country.
If you have to do something in Sayok there is no best people than them. You have to do it to understand.
Thanks you Sawadi Sai Yok.

Elephants' Home & Nature

If you hate to see "taxi-elephants" being hooked, chained, underfed, abused, ridden on the heavy basket chairs... If you want to share beautiful moments taking care and having personal touches with the elephants in their habitat...Explore it yourselves @ Elephants' Home & Nature... A Relaxing place for rescued elephants... NO saddle / No basket chair 24 hours...

Reviewed By PJ R - Washington DC, District of Columbia

We have been to other elephant rescue places such as the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai and there are not in the same league. It was such a pretty to use a baby elephant as a cashier to take the money to put it in the man's pocket. It might be fun, but you cannot claim respecting animals and doing this kind of trick. The elephant riding was an experience but not a great one. I would not recommend except if you never had the opportunity to approach elephants. The location is nice on the river bank, and you are in the middle of nowhere, but all this seemed somewhat fake.

Rock Valley Hot Spring & Fish Spa

Reviewed By asdaSap - Bangkok, Thailand

I do recommend this facility to travellers who love onsen. Not only I experienced the relaxation in so many type of herbal and original onsen pools, I also like the costume to wear in bathing. The service was exceptionally good. There were shower facility, clothes changing facility with very helpful staff, and lockers.

Sai Yok Elephant Park

Reviewed By Tintin L

An experience unlike any other. Getting to wash and feed elephants is fun and I would really recommend all people to tryout if given the opportunity. Unlike other elephants I've seen in Thailand these didn't have any chains or saddles on them and I hope they're treated well.

Very nice trainer with very good obstacles. Even it's Sunday but there's a fews people joining this activity which made the trip so private. Glad to be here even it's kindda far from downtown.

Baan Ricky

Motocross Enduro Hotel Restaurant

Reviewed By SJ66_13 - Phuket, Thailand

We really had a fabulous time at Baan Ricky's. Great food, great staff, great facilities (has Wi-Fi too), and stunning scenery. The 2-day Motocross Event was brilliant fun. Very much a place to stay for all ages - lots of space and safe too. Thanks to you all at Baan Ricky's for making our 5-day holiday a very happy and memorable one. We're looking forward to holidaying with you again later this year. See you all soon. SJ, Mark, and George Jay, Phuket
