Ethical venues in Thailand
Below is our recommended list of Thailand's most ethical elephant venues.
We only recommend venues we have personally visited, or have on good authority from trusted contacts that the welfare needs of the elephants and mahouts are being met.
This is not to say that other venues not on our list aren't responsible. It just means we haven't had chance to visit and assess them yet. And this is why we have our Go To Guide, which gives advice and tips on how tourists can determine for themselves if a venue treats their elephants well.
The conditions at a venue can change quite quickly, so please do give us any feedback on your experience on these or any other venues you visit.
