Apple who works in the information center and painting room was very helpful and knowledgeable. Her elephant eye painting finished off our elephants with style. Well worth a visit.

Yes, pre-book is required. The workshop cost for 10 cm. elephant is 600 THB and 15 cm. is 1000 THB. Also, it takes about 1 - 1.30 hours. depending on the design.
