Bangkok Thailand: Elephant and Crocodile Shows

Loads of apologies for not being able to update sooner. It's been one wedding supplier meeting after another. I didn't expect maid-of-honor duties to be so taxing. Anyway, I was finally able to squeeze in making the final installment of my Thailand trip. I promised you elephants and crocodiles, right?

 A parade of Pachyderms in traditional Thai attire.

 The elephants waved to the crowds before the soccer/football game. :)


There was also a short presentation of Thailand's history and how the elephants played a part in the battles between kingdoms.

And if you thought watching elephants play soccer and engage in battles was thrilling, see the photos below of crocodile wranglers and their stunts. Yikes.
 Kiss the beast?

 I was so scared that the croc would decide to snack on his arm.  

 Sleeping with the enemy is given a whole new meaning. This photo still sends me shivers.

And of course, the experience wouldn't be complete without a personal, hands-on account of handling crocodiles. See how brave I am?

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

  10. Hi sis,

    Girltaker here and I am Purple_Power. I went to Bangkok too last March 21 to 25. Samphran is actually one of my itineraries planned before my flight. Is that located in Ayutthaya? Its just so happened that were weren't really there for the tour itself but just to meet my mom in Bangkok after her conference in Phuket. We are staying in the relatives or family of my father's brother in law. So chances are my parents can't suggest that well about the destination and I myself didn't insist that I want to visit that Samphran because we are ashame to suggest last March 25 if where we want to go. But instead I just had my Elephant ride in Ayutthaya which is not that worth because it was expensive. It was so great to know that you went to Samphran and enjoy the crocodile and elephant show.

    You can also see my blog about my Bangkok trips in case you are interested.

    Thank you for sharing your fun with us.

    1. We joined a group tour, otherwise I don't think we'll make it to the elephants and crocs.

      I'll visit your blog too! :D
