This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience an authentic elephant village in Thailand. Help us take care of their elephants with feeding, washing and exercise!
Surin province is next to a land border crossing into Cambodia, meaning it is very easy to spend a weekend exploring Siem Reap – a trip that is highly recommended. You may also want to visit Koh Chang or Koh Samui, two of the most beautiful islands in Thailand. They are reachable by overnight coach (bus). There are also several treks available through Thailand’s oldest national park at Khao Yai, a 3-hour bus ride from Surin.
The team in Surin can help you with all of the necessary planning. Please note that all trips and excursions are subject to change.
