It was great for me. I had ever found in this place. Greeny environment with animal and birds chirping sound made it more natural and beautiful. It's really amazing.

Interesting; the information room Is very informative (!) and our guide talked a lot about why the elephants are chained / how they are trained and bred. Good for an hour or so.

Last year one of the elephant birth produced 2 babies at a time. They are growing up OK. This was the first time ever happened in all the breeding centers in the world.
