    Elephant Round-Up Surin '08

    I wonder if the organizers of the prestiigious annual event might consider alternating the activities from one year to another. Nonetheless, it is a extremely social events for us locals. Come one come all. Mark it on your calendar.

    18 November. Actually, it is quite the event if you've never experienced it. Food, dancing, elephants, and merriment for a couple of days.

    Nov 21st is the feeding ceremony, the most interesting part of the festival in my opinion. Nov 22-23 the elephants show.. If you've never experienced the show, worth to see.

    the elephant festival is different Dave!
    I live in surin for my whole life and was volunteering at the elephant village a few times, but i'm still excited about the festival.

    Bathing elephant at the river is greatest thing. Amazing!
