This rescue center does great work. There is a wide variety of animals to see, including a Cassowary. Animals include but not limited to bears, elephants, gibbons and other monkeys. The buffet lunch is also really good.

Easy, private pick-up at your preferred location. The volunteers are very friendly and informative. You have the opportunity to wash, see, and feed some elephants and other incredible animals. The lunch buffet was great as well. Definitely, my highlight during my trip to Bangkok.

You can get picked up from any location in Bangkok. The car will get you at about 7:00AM so you will arrive two hours later in the rescue center.
