Important note

We don't offer any taxi service to cruel places like zoos, "tiger sanctuaries", elephant farms/resorts.

We also don't offer any taxi service to some so called "elephant sanctuaries". These are privately run companies for profit reasons. Even if some may be ethical, we simply don't have any first hand info. Although it is not easy to find reliable sources, we recommend doing your research carefully before getting to such places.

Rangers trying to protect various protected sites regularly get killed or wounded in Thailand. Poachers try to get to elephant babies by killing entire elephant families, to feed this market. "Ethical" claims done by businesses or various websites does, including big news sources are partly wrong; there is no enough evidence to proof these sanctuaries are ethical holiday destinations.

Our basic thumb rule; If you find a place where you can enter/stay without have to pay, that is an ethical place to take care of animals for sure! Try animal rescure organisations or why not see animals in wild in one of many national parks?

Disappointed, because you told me that the boardwalk at fresh water march is 30% opened, but actually it is 100% closed. We couldn't visit it...

If I had known before, I wouldn't go.

Tour operator's response

Dear Christophe,

Sorry you had bad experience with the board walk at Khao Sam Roi Yot. We are arranging taxi trips between popular attractions in the park there nearly every day, it is first time we hear it is closed. This means it must have got closed very recently. I hope you enjoyed the other 4 attractions you visited in the park.

We only offer taxi service, we can't guarantee opening/closing times of attractions, it is out of our control/responsibility.

I want to take the opportunity to thank you for the information, we just updated our website for future visitors that the board walk is closed.
