Beautiful garden with any kind of flowers, trees and they are extremely beautifully decorated. They also have statues of many kinds of animals. Recently they added dinasor village. They have many kinds of dinasors beautifully crafted. They also have traditional Thai program like shows, dances, elephant ride and dances. The program will end with a very nice elegant show. This is a must see place for everyone specially famines and children.
ELEPHANT TORTURE CAMP. My sister and I are from Washington DC and were [ill] advised to go to these “beautiful gardens” by locals, guides, and Trip Advisor reviews. What was failed to mention is that elephants are chained, shackled, rode and beaten for show. The baby elephants are ripped from their mothers from birth to make them more “trainable” which causes them immense anxiety and traumatic stress. As soon as we entered the garden and witnessed the elephant treatment my sister and I stood there for an hour completely paralyzed. Their trainers use METAL PICKS to HIT THEM IN THE HEAD TO MAKE THEM WALK/STOP/SIT/SMILE. Their innate natural behaviors and animalistic spirits have been ripped from them. They’re broken. They seemed completely psychotic - foaming at the mouth, shaking their head and bodies repeatedly, crying. It was horrendous. This garden should be shut down immediately for animal cruelty. If you want an ETHICAL, ECO FRIENDLY, HUMANE, NATURAL, experience where you can feed, bathe, shower and play with the elephants in their natural habitat (NOT a concrete jungle torture chamber) I would highly recommend Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Pattaya / Phucket / Chang Mai.
One of the most beautiful places. Lots of things to do.. Took pictures elephant ride. Cart ride. Garden. Pools.lots of foods. All you need at one place to serve you better. Even one day is not enough.....
One of the most beautiful gardens and theme parks i have visited.there are plenty of things to see and to enjoy here like Take pictures, elephant ride or you can have Cart ride to see each and every corner of this garden. cart would stop at different places so you can have pics etc.there are pools and lots of foods as well. you can enjoy theatre and dramas there plus live elephant show also.the main draw back is that one day is not enough for this.
This is a fun family outing if the weather cooperates. It is an oddity but worth a half day to a full day permitted you are able to get the local rate. We only explored the garden and skipped the Thai cultural show, elephant show and buffet.
Excellent place, must visit, keep one full day as the place is spread over a large area and takes time, use the bridge to walk around instead of using the shuttle, however do choose a cloudy day as the hot sun can be a spoiler
I visited this place for the second time after a gap of ten years. Infrastructure has improved considerably and the cultural show is very good, but the elephant show has become quite pathetic. The mahouts are only intent in collecting money from the spectators and there is very little of the original elephant show! Effects of over commercialization!
The park is in the Pattaya area, very spacious and beautiful. Consisting of several areas, there are flower gardens, cactus gardens, dinosaur statues, animal-wide sculptures, and more. Looks like it should be 1 full day to be able to photograph photos in all spots. We can enjoy the elephant show and dance of Thai culture dance. Very recommendable
Enormous garden, South of Pattaya. According to Google, the people are spending around 3 hours here - I would suggest to have a free day if you want to enjoy it and see it all. As the time I visit it (Feb 2017) they were expanding it more and were making it bigger. The entry was 650 baht for two people, which I find it normal for such effort and so many things to see and experience. There are toilets at different places inside the garden. There are big food halls and shops. It is clean and the staff is taking care. Recommended if you in the area.
