    It is a nicely designed tour. Great guide Su who makes sure you understands the story and history behind the sights we are visiting. New and good vehicle made the long ride a breeze. Bathing with the elephant is such a fantastic experience and should not be missed.

What To Expect

Get away from the busy city and immerse yourself in the beauty of Bangkok's untouched nature with this one day tour. In the morning, you'll meet up with your guide and group at the lobby of the Adagio Bangkok Hotel. Once everyone's all settled, hop inside the air-conditioned van and make your way to Malika R.E 124, a recreation of a Thai town circa 1905 that takes you back to the time of Rama V. Your next stop is the Kanchanaburi River Kwai Bridge, with its iconic Three Pagodas that support the train line that runs for 250 miles. Soak in the picturesque sight of the cerulean-blue waters that are bordered by lush greenery and a colorful house every now and then. If time permits, you'll then go for a train ride on the Thai-Burma Railway, dubbed as the Death Railway due to the number of slaves and prisoners of war that died as it was being constructed. During the ride, you'll go over the famous Thamkra Sae, a wooden trailway bridge surrounded by the tall trees. Take a quick break for lunch at a nearby restaurant, at your own expense, before you visit the Kanchanaburi Elephant Camp and meet the cute and cuddly elephants. Spend some time playing with the elephants and bathing them in the river (they're probably even going to spray you with some water as a sign of fun!), then hop on a bamboo raft and enjoy a few moments of serenity as you drink up the awesome view of Kanchanaburi River from a new perspective. After having fun with the elephants and the boat ride, you'll then change into dry clothing, before you pack up and head back to the city.

    the guide (Dao) is very friendly and take care of the group everytime. but I don't like this tour much because of taking about 3 hours to go and 3 hours to back. not recommend for people, who can't stand being in the car for a long time.
  • Nicholas Duane 6 Jan 2019
    Overall this was an excellent tour. It took the tour company almost three weeks to confirm my reservation, even after payment was made. My experience could have been a bit better, though. First off, I was on a tour will all non-english speaking tourists- this is not a bad thing, however I was the only English speaking tourist and it was very difficult to feel a part of the group and the tour guide- who tried very hard, mostly spoke in Chinese. I felt like I got the abbreviated version of everything. I feel I should have been told this before I arrived. Also, the best part of the tour, the elephant park, was amazing- but extremely rushed. Like I said, everall a great trip, but could have been so much better.

    The day started with us leaving late because the guide decided to wait 30 minutes for a group. This doesn’t align with the policy of the tour. Because of this, we were stuck in traffic. The tour says it’s offered in English but our guide’s English was extremely limited. We had to repeatedly ask her to explain in English and she would kind of smile and not explain. Luckily we had a family on our tour that helped us out. Lunch was horrid and cut short due to us leaving late. Also, the elephant bathing is a camp, not a sanctuary so they allow riding which we do not support. After going to an additional stop before returning to the hotel (not planned), the guide asked us for a tip of 100 tbh per person. I was already planning to tip but being asked and then told what to tip did not sit well. When my husband went to offer the 100, she then asked, what about 200 per person. I wouldn’t recommend this tour.

    The entire trip was nice, but towards the end of the trip, the tour guide informed everyone that we should give a 100 tip, 50 for herself and 50 for the driver! Tourist should not be obliged to give a tip. This is your job, you get paid for it already, you get tipped if we feel you deserve it.
  • Cathherine Mae Villareal 9 Dec 2018
    this tour is not recommended for people who can't speak Chinese. the tour guide spoke Chinese the whole time. he only spoke English when he told the group that there are 3 Filipinos in that tour. the places were beautiful but the elephants were not treated well (i think). and at the end of the tour, when i gave a tip, the tour guide told me that i should give for each person. i was with my parents, so the tip should be times 3 more than what i gave.

    This tour was amazing! Our tour guide nom was really entertaining and made sure that everybody had a great time! The elephant camp was the highlight since it was really great to bathe with the elephants and you can shower when you get back to the holding area before heading back to bangkok
  • Ji Sook 1 Dec 2018
    Dao had a big friendly personality and really made the tour fun! She did the tour in both English and Chinese, and although her Chinese was better than her English (and I only understood English), I still had a great time and learned about the significance of some of the sights we were seeing. However, I think the Chinese speaking tourists may have gotten a bit more info than the English speaking tourists due to our guide's ability to speak better Chinese. The entire tour had beautiful scenic sights and views. The Mallika village of ancient Siam is serene and picturesque, and the food there was delicious. You do have to pay for your own food - our guide asked if we wanted pad thai so she put in an order for us. We then found some other tourists also getting some soup noodles so we also ordered that and a dessert dish as well. Be sure to bring a towel and change of clothes! Swimming in the river while bamboo rafting and elephant bathing was definitely the highlight of the tour. It's probably best to wear your swimsuits under your clothes! After the elephant bathing and bamboo rafting, you'll ride a truck back to the main entrance of the elephant "park" and you can use the bathrooms there to dry off and change into your dry clothes. Also bring your own toilet paper!! Many of the restroom stops don't have toilet paper so it's best to bring your own roll!

    This tour was the highlight of our trip. Me and my friends really enjoyed the itinerary of the tour. We enjoyed the rain rail tour and have a beautiful time travel experience at the Malika City. The elephant bathing experience was my favorite. It was very organized and every place visited was worth the photograph. The overall tour was worth the penny and the tour guide was very friendly and ensured that everyone enjoyed.

    Great tour! The elephant bathing experience was thrilling! So was the raft ride. Tour guide very knowledgeable. With enough stops in between to get food and toilet breaks. Overall a great experience!
