There are 3 elephant camps in Klong Prao : Klong Plu Ban Chang, Baan Chang Thai, and Baan Camp Chang. You can not miss them, you will see the elephants from the main road. Lots of people are against elephant ride or godforsaken animals in captivity. It ‘s a unmanageable subject but you have to know that in Thailand there are godforsaken and domestic elephants, like horses, camels or lama for model in early countries.
elephant owners on Koh Chang are taking very commodity care of their animals, they feed them and treat them good. Cruelty against animals is prohibited in Thailand and if they would maltreat their elephants the camps would be closed. As an animal lover, I prefer to feed them, bring them pineapples, bananas, sugar cane alternatively of riding them.
