Pattaya Elephant Village  

One of the most famous animals synonymous with Thailand is the majestic beast that is the elephant. Nothing says, ‘you are in Thailand’ more than seeing an elephant or riding on one. For hundreds of years, the elephant was on the Thai flag and has only been removed over the past 100 years. If you want to see these majestic beasts up close and personal, visiting the Pattaya Elephant Village is unmissable.  

Nothing says, ‘you are in Thailand’ more than seeing an elephant or riding on one.

Open since 1973, the Pattaya Elephant Village is situated in the Thai countryside in East Pattaya and was initially set up to be a sanctuary for elephants who have been rescued from logging enterprises, or those elephants that are too old to work in the fields anymore. Logging is hard work, even for an animal as sturdy and durable as an elephant, so the Pattaya Elephant Village is not just a great place to see these majestic beasts but is also a vital place for these creatures.  

At the elephant village, you can enjoy elephant trekking and shows, watch them painting, playing football and all manner of things. There are various showtimes and trekking times throughout the day that allows you to sit atop an elephant, ride through the stunning jungle terrain and get close to these fantastic animals.

Alongside the elephant trekking, Pattaya Elephant Village also offers a variety of outdoor pursuits such as ATV Riding, Ox-Cart Riding, rafting, viewing their Thai silk house, and even seeing other animals such as birds and monkeys.  

If you are looking for a morning or afternoon of educational fun, the Pattaya Elephant Village is a place you can learn more about elephants while also giving to a good cause.
