Elephant rides around the ruins

Not a bad way to see them

What we say: 2.5 stars

A 15-minute ride takes you in a loop past Wat Phra Ram and Wiharn Phra Mongkhon Bophit, but it's quite pricey at 400 baht. If wanting to skip the ride, anyone can view the elephants in their kraal and feed them sugar cane for 20 baht.

Note the traditional red costumes and round brimmed hats worn by mahouts. If the short ride isn't enough time with these gentle giants for you, or if you'd prefer to observe rather than ride them, head out to the elephant village to the east of the island.
