2. Go Elephant Trekking at Mahawangchang Elephant Camp
If you are going to see elephants in Thailand then it is only fair that you see them in their natural environment, situated about a four hour drive from Bangkok this camp will not let you down. At Mahawangchang Elephant Camp you get to swim in the river with the elephants whilst your tourist guide takes endless photos on their camera for you. Riding bareback on the elephants whilst they are playing in the river is a truly amazing experience and one not to miss.
P.S The photos that the guide take are free, if you have an SD card take it with you and they will happily take the pictures for you to keep.
