Introduction: As well as being Thailand's national animal, the elephant is of course also one of the country's most important trademarks. The elephants work in the jungle, where, among other things, they clear out lumber, though not as widely as in the old days. The elephant is still used, where it is difficult getting through with machines.

Elephant trekking & show in Hua Hin

 Elephant trekking in Hua Hin, Thailand
In the old days, when Thailand produced a lot of teak, elephants were used as the primary labor.

Regrettably a major part of the jungle was cleared (about 70% of Thailand was covered by rainforest). The teak was eventually put under protection in 1989 and many areas were converted into national parks.

Today 77 national parks exist with wild animals that are protected in Thailand.

The King is the key figure behind this conservation and if anybody wants to clear part of the forest, they need special permission from the King.

The conservation of the forest has meant that the elephants have been made redundant and some of them have been sent to Laos and Cambodia, where they work in the forests. Today, most of them are giving rides to tourists though.

In Hua Hin more of these “elephant villages” are found and you can experience riding one of the giants. An experience you should not miss out on when you are in Thailand.

We recommend Hua Hin Safari Park, which in addition to Elephant Trekking, also offers Snake as well as Crocodile & Tigers Shows .
