Trip Summary

Want to live up close to elephants? Fancy seeing and experiencing the ‘real’ Thailand? Up for an adventure and something you’ll remember for the rest of your life?

If you’ve answered yes to all three, or even just one, then this is the experience for you!

Starting with an arrival weekend in Bangkok, a great tour of some of the highlights and the chance to explore and enjoy the famous chaos and party atmosphere of Khao San Road and the surrounding area. Then it’s off to Surin in the heart of ‘Isaan’ where the ‘real’ Thailand is still alive and well – relaxed  and friendly people, warm greetings, awesome food and of course the real reason you are travelling – elephants!

During your time in Surin you’ll spend 4 days a week in the elephant village getting stuck into all sorts of activities and also spending time getting to know the local people and way of life and then you’ll spend Friday through Sunday each week back in one of our shared houses in Surin town. The elephant village is of course amazing – basic and simple but an experience we wish everyone could have at least once in their life – but Surin town is also a great place to spend time. With great markets, restaurants and very cool bars you certainly won’t be at a loss for things to do.

Trip Info

Day 1: Arrival

You’ll be met by our local team on arrival at Bangkok airport (BKK) who will then transfer you to your Bangkok accommodation very close to Khao San Road. Depending on what time you arrive (we recommend arriving in the morning if possible) you can relax, get to know some of your fellow travellers for the adventures ahead or explore the fascinating streets around your hotel.

Inclusions:                            

  • Meet and greet at the airport and transfer to your accommodation
  • Overnight accommodation in a twin / triple shared room with air-conditioning

Day 2: Explore Bangkok

As a group you’ll meet up at around 10:00am to start your real exploration of Bangkok. Your tour today includes a canal boat trip (don’t forget your camera) through stunning traditional communities, a visit to Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn), Wat Pho (home of the most important reclining Buddha in Thailand) and Wat Phra Kaew / The Grand Palace (please note that the entry fee to the Grand Palace is not included – currently 500THB per person).

This tour with our local team covers some of the most memorable sites of the city, gives you a real insight into traditional Bangkok and lets you see some of the most stunning temples in the city.

Once the tour is finished (usually around mid-afternoon) you’ll head back to your Guest House with some time to freshen up and relax (remember, it’s pretty hot here) and get ready a night exploring the local area.

Inclusions:

  • Breakfast
  • Guided tour of Bangkok
  • Overnight accommodation in a twin / triple shared room with air-conditioning

Day 3: Transfer to Surin

After an early breakfast you’ll start your journey to Surin. Transferring first to Bangkok’s main train station, you’ll then settle into your air-con carriage for the 7 (or so) hour journey to the heart of Thailand. Passing first through the seemingly never ending sprawl of Bangkok, you eventually get out into the countryside, skirting National Parks and slowly getting onto the plains with never ending rice paddies and typical South East Asian scenes.

Our team of course travel with you and will help you try some of the best snacks for sale along the route – be adventurous!

Note: whilst transfers are usually by train, from time to time

On arrival in Surin, you’ll head to our great shared houses in the town and meet the rest of the local Surin team. Over the next couple of hours our team will talk to you about the programme ahead, give you some of the history of the elephant village and the progress and changes that have been made with regards to elephants in Thailand and, of course, make sure you find the best places to go and get some food!

The accommodation in Surin town is in shared ‘dorm’ style rooms with between 3 and 5 people per room. There are plenty of fans to keep you cool, shared bathrooms (with warm water showers) and a small kitchen area with simply utensils should you not fancy the amazing Thai food on your doorstep!

Inclusions:

  • Breakfast
  • Transfer to Surin
  • Overnight accommodation in Surin town
  • Local orientation from our Surin team

Day 4: Elephants!

This morning you’ll transfer from Surin town to the elephant village travelling through lots of small villages along the way – keep your eyes peeled and don’t be surprised to see elephants with their mahouts along the route!

Once you arrive at the village you’ll settle in to you accommodation (with one of the senior village members) and then our team will show you around and get you prepared for all the activities to come. Of course you’ll also be introduced to the elephants that live literally on your doorstep!

Inclusions:

  • Lunch and dinner
  • Transfer to the elephant village
  • Simple accommodation in the elephant village
  • Services and support of the local team

Day 5 – 6: Experiencing life in the village

Throughout your time in the elephant village you’ll get involved with a range of activities and, of course, be able to spend as much time as you want with the elephants living with the family you are staying with!

The activities you can expect throughout the week are:

  • Walking alongside the elephants, taking them to the local river and helping bathe them. NOTE: Riding of the elephants by visitors is not allowed!
  • Planting and harvesting crops and food for the elephants
  • Helping feed the elephants
  • Cleaning the elephant ‘areas’
  • Making elephant ‘dung’ paper
  • Kayaking on the local river
  • Helping make tasty Thai food
  • Hanging out with the elephants – you can spend hours sitting watching the elephants and getting to know them

A full-time member of our time will be with you throughout your time at the elephant village to help you get the most out of your time here!

Inclusions:

  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Simple accommodation in the elephant village
  • Activities as listed
  • Services and support of the local team

Day 7 – Elephants and then back to Surin town

You’ll spend most of today at the elephant village (activities as listed on days 5 and 6) and continuing to learn about the village, the life of the mahouts and, of course, spending time with these wonderful animals.

Around mid-afternoon it’s time to say goodbye and you’ll head back to Surin town where you’ll stay again at the same houses as on Day 3. The evening gives you a great opportunity to wash your clothes (it can be dirty / muddy / dusty in the village), hang out and of course sample some of the great bars and restaurants of Surin.

Inclusions

  • Breakfast and lunch
  • Transfer to Surin
  • Shared accommodation in Surin

Day 8: Depends on the length of programme you’ve booked!

If you’ve booked a 1 week elephant experience, you’ll be leaving today either heading back to Bangkok and home or heading onwards for further adventures and travels. Your return transfer to Bangkok isn’t included in the fee but our team in Surin can help you arrange tickets and travel plans to pretty much anywhere – just make sure you ask them in good time.

If you’ve booked a 2 week or longer elephant experience then days 8 – 10 are free time. Of course accommodation is provided in the Surin houses – a great opportunity to meet other travellers, explore the town and local area and sample some of the great food and nightlife all around – and our team are always on hand (our staff house is less than 5 minutes walk away!). However, this can also be an opportunity to see some other parts of Thailand. Lots of travellers decided to head to Khao Yai National park for the weekend (roughly 3 hours away), many also head to the beach for the weekend and explore the stunning white sand beaches of Koh Samet (this is a much longer journey and takes up to 8 hours each way!). Whatever you want to do, our local team can help make suggestions and assist you in booking transport and even accommodation.

For those of you who are staying for 2, 3 or 4 weeks – your programme then repeats itself from Days 4 through to 8, travelling to the elephant village on each Monday morning and returning to Surin town on the Thursday afternoon.

PROJECT INFORMATION AND BACKGROUND

Surin has for generations been regarded as the ‘home’ of elephants in Thailand. Hundreds of years ago the Gwi people (sometimes also known as ‘Suay’ people) achieved prominence through their ability to work with elephants and at this time in Thai history the elephants were much as horses were used in Europe – as means of transport (particularly for high ranking members of society) as farm animals and also in the Army as Cavalry. Over the generations the Gwi people lived with their elephants and bred them, creating large number of elephants born into a semi-domesticated role.

In more recent times of course machines replaced the elephants in farms, buses and cars replaced them as a mode of transport and the Army started to use tanks rather than elephants in the ‘cavalry’ – however the Gwi people still needed to look after their elephants who had grown up in their communities. Many elephants started to be used in the logging industry and other sources of income started to include elephant ‘trekking’, using elephants for begging and also the development of elephant shows – which unfortunately still take place today.

As much of the logging industry was banned in the last 30-40 years more and more mahouts found themselves needing to enter either the trekking, shows or begging ‘industries’ to provide a living not only for themselves but also for their elephants.

Now in the 21st Century as the move against elephant trekking rightly picks up it’s pace and the focus is rightly on ensuring the best lives possible for the elephants, the mahouts of the village you’ll be staying have bit by bit progressed and offer this fascinating programme. By not allowing riding (other than by the mahouts) and aiming to give an all round experience for the visitor of time with the elephants and village life, the community is able to look after their elephants (who’ve been with them all their life) and themselves without the need to take their elephants to urban areas begging or to put their elephants (who are treated as family members) into elephant shows. The revenue they receive from the programme has allowed them to develop their community and to continue to give their elephants the best life possible.

However, there is still some way to go as there always is in such radical changes to how elephants are regarded and looked after. It took a long time to persuade all mahouts to stop allowing visitors to ride (and unfortunately many visitors do still ask / plead to ride!), it’s been a lengthy struggle to stop the mahouts using their traditional ‘hooks’ but great progress has been made by working with the mahouts step by step.


Chains are still used for the elephants to stop them wandering off and destroying the village crops but there is a plan in place at the village to acquire enough non farmed land and to then build an elephant proof fence allowing the elephants then to no longer ever be chained at night or when not exercising and so on. This will take time and careful planning but step by step key mahouts are buying into this concept and in the future it will happen.

Please note that the elephants in the village are loved and cared for with great passion by the mahouts. The mahouts look after their elephants from birth (birth of the elephant!) and think of the elephant very much as a son / daughter and full on member of the family. At your accommodation you will see the village family spending huge amounts of time with their elephants, even sometimes simply sitting and looking / chatting with them.

Travel with an open mind, listen to and talk with the mahout family and you will quickly see just how much love and care there is and a genuine desire to continue to improve and develop the way in which the elephants live.

Accommodation & Meals

You will stay in 3 different sets of accommodation during your experience – a Guest House in Bangkok, a shared house in Surin town and the village accommodation whilst at the elephant village.

Bangkok

Here you’ll stay in twin / triple shared rooms in a simple but clean and well run Guest House 5 minutes stroll from the mayhem of Khao San Road. Located on a bustling street with some great bars and restaurants of it’s own, you’re in the perfect position to explore Thailand’s backpacker hub.
All rooms have air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms (western style toilet and hot water showers!) and access to wi-fi (although please note that wi-fi won’t be as quick or as reliable as you’re used to at home.

Surin town shared house

We have 3 houses in Surin all located very close to each other (so a great opportunity to mix and meet others who are participating in different programmes based in Surin) and all within 5 minutes walk of our staff house where most of the Surin team live.

The houses are all very much the same and comprise of:

  • A number of simple but clean bedrooms with a mixture of bunk beds and single beds – between 3 and 5 beds per room depending on the room size. The windows all have mosquito screens, there are plenty of fans to keep you cool.
  • A downstairs and upstairs bathroom with shower (warm water)
  • A living area with chairs, information boards etc
  • A small kitchen area with very basic cooking facilities – note: it’s actually much cheaper and tastier to eat out!
  • Each house does have free wi-fi but please note that this is semi-rural Thailand! From time to time the service does drop – particularly during a storm – and the bandwidth isn’t great. Usually perfect for social media / emails etc but don’t expect to be able to watch movies / download videos / spend hours on FaceTime….
  • A sitting area outside the front of the house – great for chilling in the late afternoon / evening but please don’t make too much noise after around 9:30 pm as the neighbours need their sleep as well.
  • There is a convenience store very close to all 3 houses, perfect for water, soft drinks, snacks, soap etc
  • There are lots of foodstalls within a few paces and then a number of great restaurants and bars within 5 minutes amble
  • Further into town, a 5 minute tuk-tuk ride opens up literally hundreds of places to eat and some very cool bars indeed
  • We have a cleaner who does an incredible job of keeping the houses ship-shape and she also does washing if you want for a small fee. Please do, however, help her by keeping your gear in some sort of order and not leaving food / snacks etc on the floor / in the open (no-one likes ants in their pants…)

PLEASE NOTE: Surin is in a rural part of Thailand and as such you can expect all sorts of different insects and ‘wildlife’ that you might not have encountered before. Ants are common (and guaranteed if you leave any food / scraps out and about), cockroaches are an occasional but unfortunate part of life, particularly during the rainy season, and mice can and do make an occasional appearance, again particularly escaping a heavy rainstorm. None of these are an indication of lack of cleanliness – they happen in the smartest household – rather they are all part and parcel of living and experience ‘real’ Thailand.

NOTE: At certain times of the year we may use a fantastic local guest house as your accommodation when you are back in Surin town. All rooms on a twin and triple share basis, en-suite bathrooms etc.

Elephant Village Accommodation

The elephant village accommodation is very simple and basic but allows you to live in the heart of the village, with a mahout family and incredibly close to some of the elephants.

  • You will share rooms with a number of fellow travellers sleeping on simple mattresses on the floor under mosquito nets (in the same way that many villagers do)
  • Fans are provided to keep you cool!
  • Shared toilet facilities are in each house with cold water showers and simple ‘Western’ style toilets (please be aware that in many parts of Thailand there isn’t handle flush system – instead you need to pour water from the bucket next to the toilet down the toilet to flush away your business!)
  • There are lots of shady areas outside the accommodation to relax in and even some hammocks for those in need of some serious chilling.
  • Meals are eaten at long communal tables outside the accommodation (but under a roof!)
  • There is no wi-fi at the village – meaning you can experience life to the full and save all your social media updates until you’re back in Surin town

Whilst all meals are provided at the village and there is always bottled water on hand, there are also a couple of small village shops with snacks / drinks / beers and where possible we try to ensure you get the chance to visit a local weekly market in a nearby village – the food there is incredible and if you get the chance to sample the homemade blueberry ice cream stuck in a bread bun you won’t regret it!

What were the highlights of your trip?

Where do I start?! Just being near to the elephants was amazing, but giving them a bath and feeding them was brilliant. I also enjoyed the kayaking, and being in Surin at the weekends was really cool. Also, the staff in Surin were incredible. Nam and her team really looked after us, and knew their stuff!

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

No, we did more than I imagined! It was great to be able to go on trips at the weekends, and the team were really helpful in helping me organising them. It was really cool to be able to pop over to Cambodia for a couple of days!

Tips for other travellers?

Pack light! There are loads of places to shop in Bangkok, and you don't want to be lugging loads of stuff around with you! Also have an open mind and say yes to everything - there's some amazing stuff to get involved with, so don't miss out.

Any other comments?

Do it! You can do it at the end of the Thailand Experience, like I did (it's so different to everything on there!) or just do it alone - it's honestly one of the best things I've ever done.

Meeting the locals, meeting the group also on the elephant project and the coordinators! The tour in Bangkok... saw some beautiful things that day! the temples are amazing. But mostly, spending time in the elephant village and getting to work hands on with the elephants, Taking them to the river was especially amazing. Even the hard work parts where a highlight for me, weeding the fields, cutting bamboo etc.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

Not so much that I felt like anything was missing, the first week i was there we seemed to have a lot of down time, which wasn't so much of a bad thing for me as i enjoyed a break from working in the heat and I was fortunate enough to have been there with an amazing group so we just chilled & and had a laugh together. But we didn't feel like we where doing enough so we spoke to the coordinators about it and they worked us a little harder the second week! maybe a few more activities could be included for those who like to be constantly doing things, we did kayacking on tuesdays up the river which was good!

Tips for other travellers?

Take a Backpack not a suitcase it is alot easier, don't over pack clothes either you don't need them and they all get a bit ruined! just take essentials and you can buy clothes and anything else you might need while your there for cheap. Lots of bug spray! Don't be afraid to try the food everything i had was great especially the food cooked for us through the week while in the village!! go for as long as you can afford, 2 weeks is not long enough in my opinion, Get stuck in to the work even on those hot days! Don't be afraid to ask for anything, there is someone always about to help you with any problems.

the highlights where definitely waking up to see elephants in your back garden, and I loved the first two nights in Bangkok, Khao san road was amazing!! The satisfaction of knowing that you are helping the local community who you become close friends with is unforgettable.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

I only stayed for 2 weeks which I only had one weekend free so I chose to go to Cambodia which was stunning and amazing, Pub street was incredible, I would definitely recommend to go there. There was another option to go to a national park which some people I met there went on, that looked incredible and wished I could of see that as well but didn't have time. So I would of liked more free time or more trips to explore.

Tips for other travellers?

1) do not take a suitcase! take a backpack, I took a suitcase and travelling from Bangkok to surin for me was a nightmare, plus I didn't even use half the stuff I took 2) everything out there is so cheap so make the most of eating out and doing trips, In Cambodia we got a tour around all the temples for only $13! 3) don't be shy! talk to everyone, do every trip and you will not regret it.

Staff were so friendly, accommodation was good and clean, cant fault it.

A weekend trip to Khao Yai National Park is a MUST! Such a beautiful park, we had a fab time.

Tips for other travellers?

1. Always travel with an open mind and enthusiasm, you will enjoy it more. 2. Experience everything- make the most of your time away, take up every opportunity. 3. A loo roll comes in very handy in Asia...

Any other comments?

This is not a criticism but a tip- because I wasn't picked up by the team having already been travelling in Asia, when I arrived at the hostel I had no meeting information. I hadn't met anyone from the team and had no idea where or when we were supposed to meet, and there was no info at reception. Neither did my roommate as she wasn't picked up either. In the evening, I bumped into someone who was also volunteering and she said we were meeting at 10pm in reception. My tip is to leave info with someone at reception regarding a meeting time or something as I felt pretty lost!

Any other comments?

I felt some of the pre-trip info to be misleading. Especially about what we would be doing and how it was going to be set up. I was expecting more elephants than the three or four in the backyard. I absolutely loved every second, but did feel a bit misinformed.
