Ban Kwan Chang information
Tours ranging from 30 minutes to one hour (800/1300B) that involve feeding, bathing and riding a pachyderm are offered in a beautiful forested setting home to 10 rescued female elephants. Owner Pittaya Homkrailas is a well-regarded conservation enthusiast who works to preserve a humane relationship between the elephant and mahout, but it's worth considering the animal welfare issues involved with elephant rides before choosing that particular option.
Transport is included in the price. Be sure to apply mozzie spray.
