Koh Samui Elephant Trekking Excursion Reviews

During a Koh Samui elephant trekking excursion, visitors will get to see several interesting and unique attractions and enjoy a ride atop an elephant. Along the way you're likely to see monkeys and you may even be able to pick some coconuts.
Up close to the elephants, good trek around a track although uncomfortable.

The elephant trek was boring.

The elephant trek was boring. You got on the elephant and a trainer? drove him around a track. No one told us what this place was about. Did they rescue the animals? Were they captured? Who knows, they just wanted a tip and some bananas for the elephant to let them know we enjoyed the ride. It was not enjoyable. The elephant show was worse. The first 15 minutes was spent taking money from people and making the elephant take them for a ride around the rink. Kids were running up the elephants and begging to get on top. The elephants were wearing chains. They looked abused. The music was too loud and the host of the “show” was obnoxious and childish. Read Less

I was shocked at how stressed the baby elephant was.
Sail Date: March 2017
I was shocked at how stressed the baby elephant was. When he wasn't perfuming he was swaying side to side. I told them he was stressed and they agreed and said it was because he was taken away from his mother.

Best day of our holiday, we visited a picturesque water fall, watched trained monkeys harvest coconuts. Went Elephant trekking through a bush track, visited a historic rock formation and market on the coast, had a traditional Thai lunch only metres from the beach, then visited an exclusive retreat for a refreshing swim on their private beach, topped off the day with a quick 10 mins drive back to the tenders, and local street market. Great experiences for only 1250 Thai Baht per/person all up. Read Less
