Siam offers more variety than any other area, it easily to use BTS around the city. I was born and lived in this area for all my life. Also I graduated from Chulalongkorn university both Bachelor and Master's Degree, so I am the right one of the trip

Things to prepare for the trip

Dress up for temple, no sleeveless, shorts OK but not too short, slippers and sandals is OK. And we going to be outdoor mostly, so take sunglasses, hat, umbrella and sunscreen, it would be better.

Ethical Tourism to the Elephant's Home in Kanchanaburi (Day Trip from Bangkok)

★★★★★★★★★★

5.0

Amazing

Boat was great. I am very glad that he was able to change the schedule, so instead of half day, we spent the whole day at the sanctuary. Being so close to the elephants was an amazing experience.
