The little Suai village of Ban Ta Klang (บ้านตากลาง) and its neighbours, where people and pachyderms live side by side, are a bit of a mixed bag. Its main attraction, mostly for Thai tourists, is the only elephant camp in Isan, and it is focused on rides and an old-fashioned 'talent show'. On the other hand, the modern ethical elephant encounter programs, where the elephants are well cared for and there is no riding or tricks, are among the best in Thailand.
