Then, you'll be fitted with safety gear and instructions for an ATV ride. After driving through a rubber plantation, you'll come to a festive animal reserve to see an elephant, monkey, and snake performance. As you feed the monkey's, you can't miss their funny behavior and exceptional intelligence.

This was one of our all-time favorite tours. We especially enjoyed the elephant ride and show, and the park with all of the temples in the downtown area.
The guide was awesome!
