Elephant Village Pattaya
54/1 Moo 2,
Tambol Nong Prue Pattaya Chonburi 20260
Tel: 038-249818
 
Opened in 1973, the Elephant Village is a sanctuary for elephants, who have been forced to retire because of injury or ill health.

The Elephant Village provides these elephants with a place to live out their lives with freedom and dignity. All fees paid by visitors to the village directly contribute to the survival of the elephants.

There are currently thirty elephants in the village and they are lovingly looked after by around one hundred staff. There are three 90-minute demonstration shows each day, where the mighty beasts show their capabilities to audiences of more than 1,000 visitors.

An important feature of the Elephant Village is that there is plenty of space for feeding and the natural surroundings are good for the elephants.

As well as watching the shows, visitors can go Elephant Back Trekking for 60 minutes or take a combination tour, which includes Elephant Trekking, Jungle Walking, Rafting, Lunch / Dinner.

Sri Racha Tiger Zoo
Pattaya 
   
At Sri Racha Tiger Zoo, visitors are treated to an interesting blend of capitalism and wildlife. The zoo was opened to the public on April 23rd 1997 and consists of more than 100 acres. At Sri Racha visitors can learn about, observe and even interact with wild animals.

There are many things to see and do: crocodile shows, elephant shows where the elephants play basket ball, and you can even cuddle cute baby tigers.

In the tiger tunnel, around a hundred tigers relax in a fairly natural environment. In this spacious enclosure are several caves for tigers to retreat from the heat, rocky ledges and muddy puddles.

The zoo’s philosophy is that different species of animals should interact with each other as though they were members of the same family. In another part of the park a tiger, a pig and a dog all share the same enclosure.

The admission fee is 300B for adults, 150B for children. Opening times are 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. daily and you need at least four hours to see everything.
